Hejira

Hejira were motorcycles produced from 1981 to 1986, at Stony Stratford, Buckinghamshire.

This small firm produced racing machines using a 250cc two-stroke single Rotax engine (made by Bombardier-Rotax GmbH). They developed a twin-spar frame that linked headstock and rear-fork pivot directly, and from which the engine unit hung.

By 1986 single and twin versions in various sizes were available. They had also produced a machine with the fuel tank under the engine, with a prototype hub-centre design.

Although the design was good, lack of finances meant that the project could not be fully developed.
