was founded by Mr. S. Dorsett, and Mr. R. S. Roberts, with premises in St. James'
Square. The Omega was basically an ordinary bicycle, with the
addition of a 1.5h.p.engine. The machine, which had the feel of a bicycle
rather than a motorcycle, was designed to appeal to bicycle
riders who were unsure about riding a motorcycle. It sold for 25 guineas, which was a good price
at the time.
The machine had two chain drives to the rear
wheel, both fully enclosed in chain cases.
One was from the engine, the other from the pedals. The machines
were built to a high standard, but proved to be unpopular. Only
a few were built.
