This firm built its own engines, some of which were water-cooled and which hung from the downtube of their motorcycles and sidecar. To help with engine cooling, the latter was fitted with air scoops. Using belt drive and braced forks, it was a typically primitive design.
Whitley engines were sold to Mills and Fullford for use in the Milford motorcycles they produced in 1903-1904.
