Bike Wall: New Entry – New Gerrard

Bike Wall: New Entry – New Gerrard

Making its debut on the Motorbike is the New Gerrard 248cc, arguably Scotland’s most successful sports bike. Jock Porter designed and built his own bikes in Edinburgh, earning a strong reputation from racing them at the Isle of Man TT. There he rode his New Gerrards 21 times, winning the Lightweight TT in 1923 and the Ultra-Lightweight TT in 1924. From the early 1920s up until his death in 1952, Jock focused on running Porter's Motor Mart at 25-27 Greenside Place in the capital. The last of the New Gerrards were built in 1936.
