Montgomery Classic Bikes

Founded in 1902, the pioneer sidecar maker William Montgomery turned to manufacturing motorcycles in 1913. After the War his son moved the factory from Suffolk to Coventry where a wide range of motorcycles were made, the sporting Greyhound models with JAP engines and the 996cc superbikes (with eight-valve British Anzai engines) being notable.

Montgomery built a wide variety of bikes using bought-in engines ranging from 150cc Villiers two-strokes to 1000cc JAPs. A typical mid-1930s bike was the Greyhound, a 500cc JAP-powered single capable of 75mph (120kph). It was well made but expensive and Montgomery did not resume production after the Second World War.
