Priory were motorcycles produced from 1920 to 1924, by the Priory Engineering Company of Kenilworth, Worcestershire.

The company produced conventional lightweights and often added Ace wheel discs and Arden pressed-steel front forks. They used the 269cc Arden two-stroke engine, Albion two-speed gearbox and chain-cum-belt drive.

They later used 147cc and 269cc Villiers and 292cc Union two-strokes, and the 292cc sv JAP engines on occasion.

1926 Production ceased.
