Cotton Classic Motorcycles

The early reputation of this make was built on superb road-holding, which owed a lot to the triangulated frame invented by Francis Willoughby Cotton in 1913.

Cottons won many races in the 1920s with ohv Blackburne engines and survived into the 1970s, by which time they were producing motorcycles for the police and competitions with Villiers engineespite the fact that it says Condor on the motor, it is a Ducati, the Swiss Army would only buy Swiss machines, Condor were the only Swiss manufacturer, they couldn't build enough of the right type, so they got Ducati to build them for them and re-badge them as Condors.
