Tatam was a motorcycle produced from 1955 to circa 1968, by Martin 'Spud' Tatam.

Tatam was one of the first to build grass-track machines in the speedway style using JAP engines. For grass he added a gearbox and brakes, but in other respects the speedway format was well suited to the grass circuits of the time.
