Eric Cheney

Eric Cheney (January 5, 1924 - December 30, 2001) was an independent British motorcycle designer and manufacturer.

Initially a motocross racer, following an accident he moved into bike preparation and design. He designed primarily motorcycle chassis and suspension systems, his most noted successes were in the world road-racing championships. His designs were the last British ones to win a Grand Prix. He never worked for any of the major manufacturers but maintained a productive relationship with BSA in its heyday.

His company was originally known as Eric Cheney Designs..then changed to Inter-Moto now known as Cheney Racing....this information from his daughter Wendy now living in Spain. I will add information regularly.
