Buckley was a motorcycle produced for a short time in Sheffield, from 1903 to 1904.

Late in 1903, a motorcycle was exhibited at the Crystal Palace show. This had a powered front wheel with aluminium arms on one side, while the other side was open for access. With magneto ignition, it had a 2hp engine hung from the hub, driving it through gears.
