Dreadnought was a motorcycle produced circa 1902 possibly made by Rodgers Brothers
Motorcycle '...built in 1902, by Mr. Harold Karslake, himself a well-known rider in reliability trials, who has twice won medals with the machine — a Dreadnought — on the London to Edinburgh and back trial. Mr. Karslake is better known, however, to the younger generation of motor-cyclists, and to the racing fraternity, the fact that he is the timekeeper at Trent-lane, during the dirt-track season.'
Having survived the test of time, the machine is now owned by the Vintage Motor Cycle Club.
