Cyrus Mopeds & Motorcycles

Jacques Franssen founded the bicycle company in 1884 in Tegelen, later moving to Venlo. His sons joined the family business, and motorcycle production began in 1921.

In addition to their mopeds and motorcycles they built a variety of utility two- and three-wheelers. The Sachs-powered 1961 Bromcarrier moped had a large rack above the front wheel, and there were also three-wheel Bromcarriers the same year, with a large tray or box and two wheels at front.

They formed an association with Empo of Vorden in 1961, and business expanded. However, in 1970 the Empo company failed. Cyrus closed up the following year.
