Newton-Villiers Motorcycles

Newton-Villiers motorcycles were produced by Newton Brothers of Levenshulme, Manchester, between 1920 and 1921.

The machine was a simple lightweight with single-speed belt drive, Brampton Biflex forks and the Mk IV 269cc Villiers two-stroke engine, with flywheel magneto.

The project was very short lived.

It is marketed by Newton Bros., Levenshulme, Manchester.
