Kingsway was a motorcycle produced in 1920, by the Kingsway Motor Cycle Co of Stoke, Coventry.

1920 This machine was a lightweight fitted with a 269cc two-stroke Arden engine, CAV magneto, B and B carburettor, Best and Lloyd lubricator, Lycetts leather pan saddle and either direct-belt drive or two-speed counter-shaft gearbox with chain-cum-belt. Its only distinguishing feature was a 'Y' spring fork in place of a better known proprietary item.

Neither the fork nor the Kingsway make survived for very long.
