A Brief History of the Roc Motorcycles

Financed by the acclaimed author Arthur Conan Doyle, Roc motorcycles were produced in Guildford, Surrey, and later in Birmingham to the design of A.W. Wall. The machines used both Precision and Roc engines of 2 to 6 hp, mostly V twins. Wall's designs included three-wheelers and bicycle engines. Production ceased soon after the onset of the Great War.
