Torpedo Motorcycles of Geestemünde

A Brief History of the Marque

The German firm built motorcycles using singles and twins from Zedel and Fafnir.

Tragatsch gives manufacturing dates of 1901~1907, but notes on a machine at the PS-Speicher Museum indicate 1903-1912. [1]

There is also a Czech Torpedo built around the same time - see Torpedo Marques

N.B. 1. The machine at PS-Speicher is believed to be a Czech Torpedo.
