Produced at Acton by the Wilkinson
Sword Company, the Wilkinson had a short
history spanning just seven years from 1909.
The original Wilkinson design accomodated
a Maxim machine gun mounted in a sidecar,
but when this failed to impress the War
Office, the machine was converted into a
long wheelbase motorcycle for civilian use.
The model was introduced with a steering
wheel but this was soon replaced by handlebars.
