Whitmee Engineering of Balham, London
Alecto were motorcycles produced from 1919 to 1925.
1921 The original proprietors failed and so production was interrupted. Whitmee Engineering resumed production from the same premises and a better version of the model appeared. This was listed in complete sidecar form. Both versions were given the option of all-chain drive as oppose to the belt drive used until then
1923 An all-electric model was produced. This had CAV dynamo lighting as part of its specification.
1924 Three-speeds were offered, still with the final-drive option.
1925 Only all-chain machines were offered, and that was their final year.
