New Beeston Cycle Co

Founded in Coventry by Harry Lawson, the firm traded from 1896 to 1910. Advertising of the period suggests they built the Beeston Motor Tricycle, and the New Beeston Motor Cycle of 1896.

Harry Lawson had a licence to build the De Dion engine, and co-operated with Humber in the early days.

N.B. There was also a New Beeston bicycle built in Groningen Holland by J. Bronda as early as 1888.
