Sackville, Beach Road, Sparkhill, Birmingham
1937 Aeroplane accessory manufacturers.
The Lawson motorcycle was built in 1948 by Alec Lawson, a supplier of accessories to the trade, of the Sackville company in Sparkhill, Birmingham.
The machine was a special based on a Ner-A-Car of the 1920s, but differing in the length of the frame, which had been extended by about 5 inches/12cm. The body was in aluminium, it had out-rigger wheels, twin headlamps, a windscreen, fascia for the instruments and an intricate exhaust system. The engine, designed and built by Scottish engineer John Haythorn, was a 288cc air-cooled in-line ohc four which had a three-speed gearbox bolted directly to it, with a bevel drive for the rear chain.
There was never any intention to market it.
