Cedos Motors of Northampton1919 to 1929.
| The name came from the founders, two brothers
Cedric and Oscar Hanwell.
Just after the end of World War I, the
company entered the market with ladies' and gents' lightweight motorcycles
powered by their own 211cc two-stroke engine. Both models had a chain-driven,
two-speed gearbox and belt final-drive. The ladies' model had an open frame
and both had to be push-started.
In 1921 They added a 257cc model, again
in both ladies' and gents' versions.
In 1922 to 1923 only the 250cc versions
were produced & the company went into liquidation, then was restructured.
From 1924 to 1928 they started using other
manufacturers for engines including Blackburne,
Bradshaw and JAP
Company was wound up 1929
