c1900_Duros

The Duros bicycle, pictured above, was manufactured by ELRCO around the turn of the century. From 1903, the company also sold Kerry bicycles and motorcycles. These were actually re-badged Sarolea motorcycles imported from Belgium.

Abingdon started making motorcycles in 1903 with a 2.5 hp Minerva engine (as Coxeter & Sons) and also used Fafnir engines. They subsequently changed their name to Abingdon-Ecco, making its own four-stroke 350cc single and 794cc V-twin engines.

Between 1907 and 1915 ELRCO joined forces with Abingdon, and during this time the motorcycles were known as Kerry-Abingdon.

ELRCO subsequently changed their name to Kerry (Great Britain) Ltd, with headquarters at Warton Rd, Stratford, London E15. In the 1950s they made a moped, the Kerry Capitano, with an Italian Testi engine.
