Westlake was a motorcycle produced between 1905 and 1906 by Anthony Westlake of London.

A 7hp machine was built, fitted with an 816cc V-twin engine, for the International Cup race. It weighed 112lb/50.8kg, pulled a high gear, and claimed a speed of 70mph/112kmh, but was not selected for the Cup team.

Westlake then offered to build 4hp touring versions of the machine, but it is not thought that there were any takers.
