Casswell Motorcycles

Casswell* was a motorcycle produced in 1904, by a London firm that was located at 29 Great Eastern Street, London.

The firm produced parts for motor tricycles and heavier vehicles. They may have built a motor tricycle which was fitted with an enclosed axle during this year.

In 1904 the company exhibited a machine at the Crystal Palace show. It had a 3½ hp Fafnir water-cooled engine mounted in a Chater-Lea frame. The radiator went flat beneath the fuel tank and the transmission was by chain to a two-speed gearbox with clutch. There is a mention of them for 1905 as fitted with Minerva engines.

In 1905 they are listed as agents for Edison phonograhs.

N.B. The name is sometimes spelled "Caswell".
