British Motorcycles


Globe were motorcycles produced from 1901 to 1905.

Their basic machines were primitive but in 1904 the firm also offered a model with the Trimo forecar or a trailer. Although such fittings were nearing the end of their popularity, the company went ahead. The forecar had a 3½hp Minerva or Sarolea engine with a water-cooled cylinder head inclined and hung from the downtube. A chain-driven pump circulated the water. A clutch was fitted to the crankshaft and the rear-wheel drive was by belt.
