Cotton The Motorcycle Masterpiece ®
The Cotton Motorcycle Masterpiece ® has a remarkable history. The brand is a British famous motorcycle manufacturer of 11a Bristol Road, Gloucester and was founded by Frank Willoughby Cotton in 1918. F.W. presided over the company until his retirement in 1953. The first Cotton motorcycle appeared in 1920. In the past the Cotton company became famous above all for its sporting models and achievements in the Isle of Man 'Tourist Trophy' (T.T.) during the 60's thanks to spectacular winning riders that made the brand a legend of motorcycles.
Inspired by Cotton winning riders’ heritage
In 1922 Stanley Woods rode a Blackburne-engined Cotton to fifth in the 350 cc Junior TT, and the following year, won the 1923 Isle of Man TT, averaging 55.73 miles per hour (89.69 km/h), bettering Douglas rider, Manxman Tom Sheard’s winning 500 cc Senior TT time, an average of 53.15 miles per hour (85.54 km/h). Cotton motorcycles took a second and third in the Ultra Lightweight TT, and a second in the Lightweight TT. They only managed a second place in the 1925 Junior TT, and a second place in the lightweight TT but in the 1926 races, awarded the first three places in the Lightweight TT. These victories helped establish Cotton as a race-winning machine, with exceptional handling for its time.The arrival of the Villiers Starmaker engine in 1962 allowed Cotton to first build the Telstar road racer, on which Derek Minter won the 1964 British 250cc Championship, and then the Conquest in 1965 which Derek Minter, this time with Peter Inchley, took to a class victory in the 1965 500-mile race at Castle Combe.
