Cyklon Motorcycles and Tricycles

A Brief History of the Marque

The Cyklon was built by Paul Schauer in Berlin. The company was best known for its Cyklonette tricycle model.

From 1901 to 1905 Cyklon was a pioneer manufacture which built standard motorcycles in the manner of the French Werner models. The strengthened bicycle frame mounted a 1.5hp engine on the front forks, driving the front wheel via a belt.

Another source (JF) says that engines used were Werner, Zedel and De Dion, and that production of automobiles continued until 1929.
