Based in Earlsfield, Coventry.
Hannon and Smith of Dale Street, Coventry
This reliable motorcycle was built with the company's own engine rated at 3hp, in a loop frame, and reportedly also bought motors from Perks & Birch, Hamilton and Coronet. With near equal bore and stroke, it had an extra main bearing, outboard of the drive pulley.
In 1904 there was a mechanical inlet valve, but the marque soon disappeared.
Mr. Hannon (sometimes spelled "Hammon") went on to produce the Arno motorcycle.
