Celeripede front fork for motorcycles
Thomas was a motorcycle produced from 1902 to 1904, by J. L. Thomas of Barnet, Hertfordshire.
This was a small producer that exhibited three machines at the late 1902 Stanley show. One was entirely of his own construction, including the engine, and had an extra-long wheelbase and Celeripede front fork.
The following year their own machine had gone, but they still had two machines on show, both still with the Celeripede front fork. One had an inclined Minerva engine, the other a Kerry made by Sarolea.
