Comery Motors of Vernon Road, Nottingham

Comery were motorcycles produced from 1919 to 1925. They were the design of W. Comery who had been Chief Engineer at Raleigh - responsible for the successful spring-frame flat-twin that appeared post-Great War.

1923 Comery left Raleigh to go on his own. He produced a variety of lightweights with 269cc Villiers engines, Sturmey-Archer three-speed gearboxes and chain-cum-belt drive. The largest Villiers engine was considered capable of hauling a sidecar, so a complete outfit was included in the range.

1925 Details were announced of a a 439cc narrow-angle V two-stroke engine. It was fully detailed, complete with outline drawings, in the specialist press, but it never went into production.
