Note: This is a sub-section of Morris

1902-1905 Having started out as a cycle agent based in George Street, Oxford, William Morris gradually turned his attention from bicycles to motorcycles, and then to cars. See William R. Morris

He began using 2.75hp De Dion and MMC engines of primitive type with belt drive. The engine was set upright in the frame that was formed to run under and round the crankcase.

He later used chain drive and a clutch, listed as a forecar, and used MMC engines only. [1]
