Stella motor cycles were built by the Stella Motor Scooter Company of Felixstowe Road, Ipswich between 1961 and 1963. Designed by Maurice Cox, the unusually small size of the Stella was based on American 'campus bikes'. The Stella is powered by a 98cc Villiers 2-stroke engine with a 2-speed gearbox.

Several Stella bikes were sold in his country, particularly in and around Ipswich. They were also exported to the USA but a large batch was caught up in an American dock strike and this caused financial problems for Stella that led to the company being wound up.
