Claude Temple was a Brooklands motorcycle racer who established many records. He built specialist machines for sporting road riders and racing.

The motorcycles employed 500cc OHV singles, 992cc V-Twins and an overhead cam Atlanta engine from OEC, the latter known as an OEC-Temple.

On the 9th May 1926 at Arpajon, France, Claude Temple rode an OEC-Temple-Anzani to the world speed record of 121.41 mph.

A 1926 brochure advertised the OEC Temple with a British Anzani OHC 1000cc engine. The price was £135.
