Viper Motor Co. of Kidderminster

Viper was a motorcycle produced from 1919 to 1921

The company produced a single model with a 292cc sv JAP engine, two-speed Albion gearbox and chain-cum-belt transmission, CAV magneto and Amac carburettor. It was virtually indistinguishable from any other machine of the era and, once local demand had been satisfied, would have been hard-pressed to compete with the larger, more notable makes.
