Before going into the automobile business William Morris had tried motorcycle manufacturing. He showed 2 of his self-designed and built machines at a Motor Show in 1902 but it took a couple of years to get into production. However the venture was not as successful as he would have liked and he sold the rights in 1908. He continued with a dealership selling different makes of motorcycles and cars until he went into car manufacturing (successfully) in 1912.
