Ray were motorcycles produced from 1922 to 1926 by W. H. Raven and Co of Nottingham.
1922 The firm was already well known for pedal cycles when they produced a novel 198cc sv miniature. It had its engine in-unit with a two-speed gear and clutch, chain final-drive and a flywheel magneto.
1924 The specification now included a kickstarter.
1925 A further miniature called the T. S. Sports was introduced. This still had in-unit construction - a 172cc Villiers-Jardine three-speed two-stroke unit. The 198cc machine became known as the RaySuper Lightweight.
1926 The above model continued alone and kept its styling for that year, at the end of which production came to a close.
