London Auto Co

London Auto Company produced motorcycles from 1896 to 1906.

The company claimed to have been established in 1896, and specialized in assembling models from a wide range of components and to individual specification.

Various frames were used and these were fitted with a wide range of engines - JAP, Peugeot, Minerva, Zedel, Brown, Stevens and others were used.

They supplied to the trade and to the colonies and, to prove confidence in their workmanship, all their machines had a one-year guarantee. They probably constructed many own-badged machines for mail-order houses and suchlike.

N.B. There was a London Autocar Co. Ltd. of 182 Grays Inn Road, London WC which advertised motor tricycles and Quadricycles, along with secondhand cars and cycles. It is unclear as to whether this is the same firm.
