GAB was a motorcycle produced in 1919.

After the end of World War I there was a boom in scooter production. The GAB was a crude and short-lived attempt to cash in on the craze. It had a pressed-steel platform for the rider to stand on, a New Hudson engine that drove the rear wheel via a countershaft and a small fuel tank. The forks had small leading links, the bars were carried by a long extension and the machine was fitted with small disc wheels.
