Ray were motorcycles produced in 1920 by the Ray Motor Co of Brick Street, London, W1.

The main line of business for this firm was to add gearboxes to old hub-geared machines and current single-speed lightweights. For a short time they also built complete machines with 269cc and 331cc two-stroke engines, Burman or Roc two-speed gearboxes with chain-cum-belt transmission, Saxon spring forks and other proprietary fittings.

Their efforts were short lived and they soon reverted to their conversion work.
