QUB were motorcycles produced from 1970 to 1975, following research by Dr Gordon Blair at Queens University, Belfast.

Research into two-stroke engines resulted in the 250cc QUB road-racing machine. It was successfully raced in Ireland, and was later followed by a 500cc single. After that the Doctor concentrated on research work for other companies, often abroad.
