Aberdale of London were motorcycles produced from 1947 to 1949; presumably the same company as Aberdale Cycle Co.
1947 The firm was London-based although production was at the Bown factory in Tonypandy in Wales. The machines were very simple and typical of the type. The 98cc Villiers engine hung from the frame and it had petroil lubrication, direct lighting and blade girders. A carrier was positioned over the rear wheel, and side panels concealed the engine. It also had a bulb horn, drum brakes and a speedometer driven from the front wheel. The controls were simple to use.
1949 The machine was revised and then sold as the Bown.
