Coventry-based Hazlewood's Ltd was established in 1876, initially as The Hazlewood Cycle Company. Unusually, the firm's first diversification was into sidecar making, and its first motorcycle, powered by a 2¾ JAP engine, did not appear until 1911. A 'Colonial' model was an early addition to the range, and when Hazlewood's exhibited at the International Motorcycle & Accessories Show in London in 1913, it also had a JAP-powered v-twin on display. The new twin was available with either a 3½hp or 5hp engine, and in the latter case came with a countershaft gearbox.

Hazlewood's manufactured munitions during World War I, returning to motorcycle manufacture with a 5/6hp v-twin fitted with their own three-speed countershaft gearbox. A larger (8hp) v-twin was added for 1921, and both models could now be specified with all-chain drive. The range for 1923 consisted of two v-twin combinations (of 6hp and 8hp) and a 500cc solo, though the latter had gone by 1924, Hazlewood's final year of production.

This machine incorporates a part original/part reproduction frame in which is mounted a JAP v-twin engine. Many of the frame lugs are corroded, and no frame number is visible. The engine number is stamped to the left-side crankcase half; the right-side case is believed reproduction and is un-stamped. The stand, rear carrier, tyres, spokes, and handlebars are new. Accordingly, prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves with regard to the origin and authenticity of this Lot's components prior to bidding. Offered without documents.
