Paul Speidel Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque


P. Speidel of Geneva, 1914

Production of motorycles began in 1914 using Condor, Moser and Precision engines, and in 1917 the firm built a high-performance motorcycle powered by a 737cc V-Twin supplied by Müller-Vogel (MV) of Saint Aubin. It was capable of 132 km/h, making it one of the fastest production motorcycles available. In total some 70 or 80 motorcycles were built, including those using the Paul Speidel marque. A number of four-wheelers were constructed, one of which was a cyclecar which took part in the 1922 Swiss Grand Prix using the same MV 750 engine.

The man who built the Quick also produced motorcycles under his own name, one of which in 1923 employed an oil-coooled Bradshaw 350cc engine which was factory certified to deliver over 14hp.
