Wizard Motor Company of the Rhondda Valley, near Cardiff

Wizard was a motorcycle produced between 1921 and 1922.

The make first appeared in July 1921 as a lightweight model. It had a 269cc Liberty two-stroke engine, designed by A. W. Wall, with the gearbox linked to the engine in a steel-plate cradle to form a unit. That was then fixed to a bolted-up, four-tube frame with duplex top and bottom tubes running from the steering head to the rear-wheel spindle. The straight-blade front forks had enclosed coil springs and the whole machine was of simple construction with belt final-drive.
