Osborne

Osborne were motorcycles produced from 1901 to 1909 by Frederick Osborne.

These early motorcycles were primitives with a 4hp engine hung from the downtube, and with a flat drive belt. There was also a four-speed engine pulley and the 1909 single had one fitted, plus an adjustor for the belt tension. Production ceased after that year.

  • Note: The firm returned to the market after the end of World War I, as OEC.
