Jump to: navigation, search

Kingsland was a motorcycle produced in 1902, in North London.

This machine was a typical primitive with vertical aiv engine, single-speed belt drive and rigid forks. It had curved down-tubes and seat-tubes which followed the line of the wheels. The lower frame-tube ran along from the crankcase front, at crankshaft level, past the pedal shaft to the rear wheel in a straight line. The make did not last long.
