Hagon Motorcycles

Hagon motorcycles were produced from 1956 to circa 1990 by Hagon Products in Leyton, East London.

For many years Alf Hagon had dominated the sport of grass-track racing, taking the British Championship eleven times. He produced frame kits and complete motorcycles for other people who had aspirations of following in his footsteps, as well as some speedway machines. His well-built bikes were fitted with 350cc and 500cc JAP engines.

Hagon frame kits were exported to destinations across the globe, fitted with a wide variety of engines, and won numerous championships.

Following a success on a sprint machine, Hagon went on to produce his own and prove himself to be just as good in that branch of the sport.

After retiring from active competition, he built up a business specializing in wheels and shock absorbers for classic and modern machines.

The frame-building part of the business was sold to Antig.
