Colibri Motorcycles (SE)

A Brief History of the Marque
Manufactured: 1919-1923

A factory in Galve, Sweden, run by Emil Jern built an auxilliary engine, later named Furir by another company which bought Jern's patent and presumeably the tooling. After WWI the firm was renamed Colibri, still selling bicycle engines, and in 1921 they built a rather impressive V-Twin. The company failed in 1923.
