Cavicchioli Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured: 1923

In 1923, the mechanical engineer Cavicchioli built an engine of 349cc with a bore/stroke of 86 mm x 72 mm using a cast iron piston, and a second piston with a smaller diameter (35 mm) in the cylinder head, which had two spark plugs.

A similar design was used by Dunelt, and the Beare Sixstroke also employed a design which somewhat fitted this description.
