In 1906 a Zedel factory was opened in la
Ferriere sur Jougne in France and one year
later the Swiss factory closed. Soon after
that the French Zedel factory was brought
under the complete control of Alcyon. Subsequently
most Alcyon motorcycles would be equipped
with Zedel or Zurcher engines. It appears
that only in 1925 JAP engines were used.
In the early twenties several makes were
taken over, such as Labor, Thomann, Française
Diamant and Olympique. After 1945 mostly light
motorcycles, scooters and mopeds were produced
till the giant Peugeot took over in 1954.
The engine is a 2hp Zurcher.
