Ellehammer Motorcycles

(Ellham Motorcycles)

Tragatsch gives manufacture dates of 1904 to 1909, but other sources indicate that the motorcycles were being produced at a much later date. Danish site Veteran.dk lists Klassiske Motorcykler Bind 4 which runs an article on a 1907 Elleham.

Ellehammers first 3-cylindered engine for his aeroplane (homebuilt using cylinders and -heads from the Peugeot-Freres engines of his motorcycle) built in the first years of the 20th century does still exist!
It is considered the mother of all radial-engines and is exhibited at Elsinore tech. Museum in Denmark, where it is started up daily

I can personally report that it runs extreme smooth!

Tech. stuff: At rebuilding after discovering few years ago the sparkplug thread showed to be standard of today, hence the significant fine pitched thread of todays spark plugs is in a way a historical relic

August 2005 - the image above was borrowed from the http://egeskov.dk/motorcykelmuseum Egeskov Castle site which has the only known example of the Danish manufactured Kyhl motorcycle built in 1905.
