The Lewis Cycle and Motor Works (later Vivian Lewis Limited) produced a large number of motorcycles - by Australian standards at least. There are no exact records for production, but we can estimate that the total number to be around 1500 - 2000, mostly in the first 15 years of the 20th century. 

The Lewis was arguably the most distinctive of the "mass-produced" Australian motor cycles. With extensive used of nickel plating, including wheels, belt rim and the brass tanks and radiator, the water-cooled Lewis is a stunner in the veteran beauty stakes.
