Barron were motorcycles produced from 1976 to 1981.

Based in Hornchurch, Essex, this company entered the market with a machine called the Baron 125. Fitted with an Italian Minarelli two-stroke engeine and five-speed gearbox, it was assembled in the UK, using Polish and Italian cycle components. It was then joined by an imported [moped and junior cross moped, which were mainly Fantic models with the badge changed. The firm continued to do this for several years.
