Cudell Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

1898-1905 Cudell Max & Co., engine and vehicle plants, Aachen
1902-1906 Cudell Max & Co., Berlin

Max Cudell, one of the oldest vehicle manufacturers in Germany, had already built tricycles and motorcycles with single-cylinder De Dion engines from 1898 to 1905. The displacement of these ancestors for the motorcycle was between 400 - and 510 cc.

Also connect to the 1900 Companies based in Aachen Fafnir built-in motor factory did not exist at that time apparently. 1906 then published in Berlin a bicycle auxiliary engine produced by Max & Co. Cudell.

It appears that the also firm built Argus engines under licence.

Martin Stolle of BMW fame worked with Cudell from 1903.

There is no further evidence of the marque after 1906.
