COTTON MOTOR COMPANY OF GLOUCESTER
WRITTEN BY NEVILLE CHAPMAN

Neville Chapman’s Cotton Motor Company of Gloucester examines the rise and fall of a British motorcycle manufacturer, and details how one man’s vision helped place Gloucester at the centre of the developing British motorcycling industry of the 1920’s, in direct competition with the likes of London, Birmingham and Bristol.
With its engineering skills and stable of gifted riders, Cotton Motor Company punched well above its weight. This paired with oustanding competition success, cemented its reputation for excellence. This is Bill Cotton’s story.
