Corydon V-Twin 1904

Corydon Motorcycles

Bradbury Brothers of High Street, Croydon built singles and V-twins, motorcycles and tricars. Singles were available as a kit.

Corydon motorcycles were produced by the firm from 1904 to 1908. The machines had been developed at a time when motorcycle sales slumped and so the company did not survive for long. The motorcycles were of good quality and were fitted with single and V-twin engines of various sizes. The frame and fittings were typical of the Edwardian era.
