Springwell was a motorcycle produced in 1920, designed and made by an engineer named E. J. Norton, of Coventry.
The name came from the good suspension with pivot-fork at the rear controlled by long leaf-springs. The motorcycle could be coupled to a matching sidecar chassis, with more coils and springs. It had Brampton Biflex forks, Burman gearbox and an unspecified V-twin engine. The design was patented and manufacturing rights sought, but the machine got no further than the prototype stage.
