Names, Logos, & a Brief Company History

We are attempting to create a massive database on all things motorcycle, and archiving the history of the brands that have helped shape this industry is something that we think is important.

We consider this list “complete for now”, but it will never be finished– we are building and expanding our motorcycle brands research section over time. If you know of another motorcycle brand or custom bike builder that starts with A and isn’t listed here, please get in touch so we can add you to this list!

Opel Automobile GmbH is a German automobile manufacturer, a subsidiary of French automaker Groupe PSA since August 2017. Adam Opel founded the Opel Company in 1863 to make sewing machines and bicycles, and by the mid 1920s they were the largest producer of bicycles in the world. Motorcycle production was over three periods, the first between 1902 and 1907. From the Armistice of 1918 through to 1923 they built motor bicycles with the liquid-cooled engine powering the rear wheel. Franz Gnädig, who was previously a partner in the famous K.G.
