Great were motorcycles produced from 1995 to 1998 in Cullompton, Devon.

This company built small motorcycles for children. Called the Bushboy, they used parts from home and abroad. The engine was by Morini with an automatic gearbox and the front forks were Paioli. The frame and other components were British. They were offered in three seat-heights and although most machines were intended for off-road use, a road model was also available. The motorcycles were normally fitted with wire wheels, but a smaller, cast alloy type was an option.
