Romp and Romper were motorcycles produced from 1913 to 1920.

1913-14 Romp was a motorcycle with Precision engines built in Birmingham

This firm assembled machines using the 3.5hp Precision engine and other bought-in components. Production was small-scale and the motorcycles were probably built to order and sold locally.

After the end of World War I, the name re-appeared for a short time as Romper. This was on a basic two-stroke machine fitted with a 293cc Union engine, direct-belt rear-wheel drive, Saxon spring forks, Amac carburettor and a Runbaken magneto.

The maker's name and location were never given and it had gone from the market by the end of 1920.
