Ivy motorcycles were produced from 1910 to 1931 in Aston Cross, Birmingham.
1913 Newman was a regular competitor in the TT, and that year gained third place in the Junior.
1915-1916 The four-strokes now had JAP engines.
Post-war, they appeared again with 225cc and 349cc two-stroke models. Gradually
they were given more speeds and all-chain drive.
1923 A 198cc two-stroke was added, and also a 348cc four-stroke.
1925 The company concentrated mainly on the four-stroke, although the 225cc two-stroke continued. One model had an ohv engine.
1928 The firm produced a two-model range of the Popular. This was probably because the company had over-extended itself financially.
1931 That range, with a 247cc two-stroke engine and the Model X with a 292cc JAP engine, ran on until that year.
