Barnsley was a motorcycle built in 1898.

Little is known of this machine, but it is thought to have been patented as a motorcycle by William Barnsley of Bilston, near Wolverhampton. Only a few were built, probably with a De Dion or Minerva engine mounted within the frame, before the patent was sold to Humber.
