AEI Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Italian Marque

The AEI was built very early in the 20th century and seems to have been the first motorcycle built in Pavia.

The only known record of the marque appears in newspaper reports of the time about a race which took place in the Piazza d'Armi in Pavia where the top three riders were: 1st Rossi AEI, 2nd Beccaria of AEI, 3rd Rolando on Peugeot.

The writer goes on in the article praising the company which has created these beautiful motorcycles, built in their entirety in Lombardia.

Despite the limited production of the marque, given the competition success it is surprising that there are no photographs nor other mention elsewhere of the brand.
