Liberty Motors was founded in 1990 as Liberty Sidecars by Pete Larsen & Patty Billings.

Pete is an industrial designer whose projects range from public sculpture and playground equipment to rowing shell trailers and cargo container lifting devices. A long term fascination with chassis & suspension design coupled with a passion for motorcycles and sports cars led Pete to design and produce the Liberty Sidecar and later the ACE Cycle-Car which was the basis for the new Morgan 3 Wheeler.

Patty’s role in the business has been of equal partner, working on a daily basis to manage & direct the business as well as hands-on assembly. Pete & Patty live in Seattle with their rescue dog ‘Cookie Bear’ and conduct business in their vintage 1925 workshop.
