Walwin was a motorcycle produced from 1968 to 1972.

This was a trials machine produced on a small-scale basis. Engines used included BSA and Ossa and the motorcycles were typical of the era. They had a duplex frame and conventional cycle parts - some were fitted with a trials sidecar. Other components included drum brakes, alloy mudguards, pivoted-fork rear suspension and telescopic front-forks. All-in-all, it was an attractive machine.
