May 1904.

Comet of Tanner's Hill, New Cross, London.

  • Comet produced motorcycles from 1904 to 1905. They built machines using Minerva 2.75hp and 3.5hp engines fitted into BSA cycle parts. Typical of the era, they were very primitive and had braced forks, diamond frame and belt drive. Like many other companies of that time, it was very short-lived.
