Dunkley were motorcycles produced from 1914 to 1916, in Jamaica Row, Birmingham.

1914 The range consisted of models fitted with Precision 2hp, 3.5hp and 4.25hp single engines, or 4hp and 6hp V-twins. The smallest had horizontal ohv, two-speed gear, belt final-drive and Druid forks. It was advertised for 27 guineas, ready for the road, and came complete with lamp, generator, horn, tools, two tool bags and a pump. Also listed was a similar model with a 349cc two-stroke engine with drip-feed lubrication.

1915 The models continued and the 349cc two-stroke now had three speeds.

1916 All models were fitted with JAP four-stroke engines.

It was not a good time to enter the motorcycle market with a range of models and it was very short lived.

1922 Showed the Pramotor at the 1922 Motor Show [1]

1923-25 Produced the Pramotor car Model 20 (and other models)
