The Williamson motorcycle was made in Coventry by Billy Williamson, who had been managing director of the Coventry-based Rex company. He developed a new motorcycle under the name Williamson-Douglas. Douglas had been developing a 964 cc water-cooled flat twin engine that could be used either for light cars or motorcycles.


Billy Williamson fitted this engine into a frame with Douglas-Druid girder forks and a Douglas two-speed gearbox and a foot-operated clutch which was launched in 1912. In 1913 an air-cooled version was added to the range and in 1914 a kick starter was added.


Production was halted by World War I and in 1919 the only engines available were JAP 980 cc air-cooled side valves, so Williamson redesigned the frame to fit. Unfortunately Billy Williamson suffered a fatal heart attack in 1920 after only twenty motorcycles had been produced.


Thisexceptionally rare water-cooled 8 hp Williamson motorcycle combination is in a wonderful condition, with only original parts and lovely patina, it is a hard to find opportunity. Even the sidecar "Bramble" looks to be very unique and attractive with nice accessories as well. There isa spare engine in addition with the motorcylce combination, which is included in the offer.


The Williamson is in a running order and comes with British and EU registration documents.
