Overview

1901 - 1908

The Eagle was closely linked to that of the Century. When Sydney Begbie took control of Century, the designer of the Century Tandem tricar, Ralph Jackson, set up a new business to make a thinly disguised version which he called the Eagle Tandem. The first Eagle 4-wheelers were introduced in 1903, a 9hp 2-cylinder and 18hp 4-cylinder, the latter with a 3-speed epicyclic transmission which he had patented in 1901.

Eagle went into voluntary liquidation in February 1905, but was not would up until nearly two years later.
