Between 1890 and 1957, Alcyon made bicycles, motorcycles and cars. They actually entered a 350cc 4-valve single-cylinder motorcycle in the 1912 Isle of Man TT races, although neither of their entries finished. From 1906 to 1955 the company had a professional cycling team, which won the Tour de France 6 times.
