Banshee Manufacturing Company of Crown Close Works, Bromsgrove
Banshee were motorcycles produced from 1921 to 1924 by George Bell, who later worked for Triumph.
1922 Those two models continued and were joined by a three-speed model for sidecar work and the Barr and Stroud 349cc sleeve-valve engined four-stroke model.
1924 The company expanded to include a very wide range of models with Villiers and Barr and Stroud engines. The efforts involved over-taxed the company's abilities and they soon retired from the motorcycle trade.
