 CYKLON / BERLIN / GERMANY   ( 1903 - 1927 )

The German CYCLON Automobilwerke GmbH became famous for its three-wheeler, that had the engine on top of the front wheel.

This three - wheeler was built from 1903 to 1923

 At least from 1926 on CYCLON offered also a conventional car, the 7/40 HP CYKLON Type D:

Yearc. 1926 - 1927


From 1923 to 1926 CYKLON produced chassis and engines for the SCHEBERA, another hardly known German  automobile manufacturer.

In 1926 / 27 they offered their first car with 4 wheels, using a 6-cylinder engine and  the chassis and coachwork from the well known German ADLER. The car was distributed by DIXI agencies as the cheapest German SIX- Cylinder car ever.
Nevertheless there was no commercial success at all and production ceased after one year. It seems that only one vehicle survived to date  and  the radiator emblem is a very hard to find item.
