Viper Motor Co
Viper Motor Co. of Kidderminster
Viper was a motorcycle produced from 1919 to 1921
The company produced a single model with a 292cc sv JAP
engine, two-speed Albion gearbox
and chain-cum-belt transmission, CAV magneto and Amac
carburettor. It was virtually indistinguishable from any other machine
of the era and, once local demand had been satisfied, would have been hard-pressed
to compete with the larger, more notable makes.
