Bard-JAP were motorcycles produced from 1919 to 1920.
Very few of these machines were built, although one is known to have survived until recent times. They had V-twin JAP sv engines and three-speed Sturmey-Archer gearboxes. They were built for sidecar work by 'Wilkie' Wilkes of High Street, Walsall, Staffordshire.
