I'm trying to compile a list of motorcycle manufacturers based in Scotland over the years. I only know of a few  ....

The Victoria Motor & Cycle Company of Dennistoun 1902-1926
The Christie brothers from Dundee, although they only made a single bike. 
Dunedin Motorcycles of Edinburgh manufactured between 1902 and 1910
Myreton Motor Museum has a 1907 G.A.C.S. (Glasgow Auto Cycle Services).
William Beardmore and Co. produced the Beardmore Precision in the 1920s.
AJR was a short-lived affair in Edinburgh in 1925 & 1926
And Jock Porter built and raced his ‘New Gerrard’ machines in the 20s & 30s.

Anyone know of any more?



I'm new here and am sorry my first contribution is to ask for help! (Although in my defence I do ride a classic bike, a 78 BMW R100RS)

I'm putting together a guide book for motorcyclists visiting Scotland and am looking for a particular type of photograph to illustrate a chapter about Scotland's relationship with motorbikes over the years, manufacturers, great racers etc
I'm trying to track down a picture of a bike (or bikes) in Scotland,but not in a competition. There are a good number of pre-war Trials pictures around but I'd prefer something recreational, rather than competitive. I've found the attached which would be perfect but I can't establish the copyright situation so can't use it.  :-[

I wonder if any of you lot have a photograph in your possession which would suit, and for which you know the copyright implications. i.e. know who took it and how to contact a member of the family, or the copyright holder - and most importantly which you'd allow me to use.
A prize to anyone who can help me out (although I don't know what the prize is yet!).  Even if you can't help, it's a chance to share the picture below.
