The Wearwell Motor Carriage Company in Wolverhampton (UK) was established in 1868 as a cycle manufacturer and from 1899 produced motorcycles. In 1903 the company produced its first 3-wheeler the “Motette” which was a modified 2.5hp motorcycle that had the front wheel replaced with a two wheeled axle and wicker seat. The vehicle was sold as a conversion kit for 2-wheeled machines but proved to be unpopular.  By 1904 the design had been altered and a new sturdier model was launched as the “Wolf”.  This vehicle was fitted with a 3.25hp Stevens engine.  The engine was later up rated to 4.5hp and then 5hp before the company decided to concentrate solely on 2-wheelers again from 1906.
