Aurora Motorcycles (Coventry)

Aurora of Coventry were motorcycles produced from 1902 to 1907.

1902 They made their own 2½ hp engine which they fitted vertically in a loop frame.
  • 1904 The first model was joined by one with a forecar, fitted with a 3½ hp engine - both of which were still made by the company.
  • 1907 After that year, no further models were listed.

A circa 1904 250cc model exists which is in the Shuttleworth Collection.

This firm is exhibiting the Aurora motor bicycle, which is entirely Coventry made. The engines used are either 2½ h.p. or 3½ h.p. Customers are entitled to select the carburetter or tyres they prefer. A wipe contact and trembler coil is fitted. The belt is again left to the customers' choice, but the firm recommends the flat belt. (Stand 306, Gallery.)
