Perfecta Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

1899. Engines of this brand powered Liberator motorcycles which were sometimes referred to as Perfecta-Liberator.

The firm was created by Alexandre Darracq to build cycle parts after he sold Gladiator, at considerable profit, to the English. In 1902 he began building quadricycles, and there is a report that Perfecta built motorcycles using their own 200cc engines. See also Darracq

Liberator & Perfecta Co. was located at 47, rue Cartier-Bresson, Paris

In 1912, the parent company of both Liberator and Perfecta was the French company Métropole, same address.

There was also a Perfecta in Switzerland, 1946-1950
