The Lewis Project

Vivian Lewis established a bicycle business in Adelaide, South Australia in 1892. As the motor age dawned in the late 1890s Lewis embraced motor cars and motor cycles with enthusiasm. Vivian Lewis Limited went on to produced a large number of motorcycles - by Australian standards at least - before production ceased in the mid 1920s. On this web site, we try to capture some of the vibrancy of the motor age at the Lewis Cycle and Motor Works.
