Trafford Motorcycles

Trafford built motorcycles from circa 1919 to 1922.

After the end of the Great War there was a boom in personal transport. This was one of the many firms who set up manufacture and used the 269cc Villiers engine in a Sparkbrook frame.

In the early post-war years supplies of proprietary parts were hard to find, and when the boom burst most small firms left the market - with the majority returning to their previous garage life.
