Grindley Motor Co
Grindley were motorcycles produced by Bill Grindley, a sporting motorcyclist, at the Grindley Motor Co works in Prees, Shropshire, from 1922 to 1939.
Bill Grindley built a number of specials over a long period of time. These were constructed to his own specifications and brought him great success in local competitions.
In 1922 he entered the Six Days Trial on a sports model that was fitted with a 249cc sv JAP engine, with two-speed Burman gearbox and all-chain drive. This was a great beginning and afterwards replicas of his machine were listed at £75 each.
From then on, and throughout World War II, he and his machines were famous amongst serious enthusiasts.
