E. G. Young

Young were motorcycles produced from 1904 to 1908, by E. G. Young of Nottingham.

  • 1904 This small producer offered a forecar powered by a 3½ hp fan-cooled Minerva engine. The aim had been to use the exhaust gas to drive it, but it was, in fact, belt driven.
  • 1905 He then showed a ladies' Bentick motorcycle with an engine inclined and mounted below the downtube of the open frame. It had braced forks and afforded a degree of protection for the rider's clothing.
  • 1908 Another model appeared as a lightweight with a 2½ hp V-twin engine mounted low down in a Chater-Lea frame.
  • It would appear that the Young motorcycles were built only occasionally, to order.
