Gough were motorcycles produced from 1920 to 1921 by Arthur Gough of Broad Street, Birmingham.
1920 Having been a motorcycle journalist, Arthur Gough went on to produce his own design of lightweight machine. He opted for the reliable 269cc Villiers two-stroke engine and Brampton Biflex forks, and added equally proven frame and ancillary components. Models included a low-priced single and a more expensive two-speed with a Burman gearbox. Both had belt drive to the rear wheel.
1921 Two four-stroke models appeared, fitted with Sturmey-Archer gearboxes. One had the 292cc sv JAP engine and was single speed, the other had a 499cc sv Blackburne engine and three speed. All models, including the existing two-strokes, had belt final-drive. By the end of the year the marque had disappeared.
