Dedics Motorcycles

Ferenc Dedics (1873-1929) and his brother, K'lm'n were trained as blacksmiths. They spent their apprenticeship in Germany where they worked at various automobile manufacturers. They returned to Hungary in 1903 and opened their workshop in Budapest. In addition to repairwork, they also built their own stationary engines and also put together a few motorcycles. At the 3rd Budapest International Exhibition they showed a few of their motorcycles and received a prize. 

In 1907 the Dedics workshop wanted to expand. From the application form it is known, that by that time they employed a staff of 16 workers. Later on they moved to bigger premises, but focused their activities solely on repairwork. 

Contemporary sources mention single cylinder, air-cooled 2 ½ and 2 ¾ hp motorcycles. Though early statistics have been lost, in 1930 there were still 8 Dedics motorcycles around, which means that probably more than a dozen were built.
