Givaudan Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Made in England between 1906 (or 1908) and 1914, the factory produced small numbers of motorcycles using single cylinder and V-twin engines mostly from Blumfield, Precision and Villiers. Their frames were built using components from Chater-Lea and BSA.

Wikipedia mentions Givaudan as an English manufacturer here

Bill Phelps, however, suggests that information on the English marque may well be erroneous.

Please notice you did use a photograph of my bike Givaudan: this is not a British bike but a French bike 1904 from Lyon. In France there was also Givaudan, made by F. Givaudan, for testing engines being an aviation pioneer
