Cymota was a motorcycle produced from 1950 to 1951 at Erdington, Birmingham and sold by Blue Star Garages in London.

The machine only lasted for two seasons and was an unsophisticated 45cc cycle-motor clip-on attachment that sat above the front wheel, driving it by friction. The motor was enclosed in a stylish cowling that carried the headlight.
