The Chicago Motorcycle Company
Chicago, Illinois

The Chicago Motorcycle Company was organized in 1898 by Charles Dickenson, L. F. Douglas and Henry B. Babson. It was until 1902 that they built an American Automobile called the Chicago.

The Chicago was produced as a two passenger Runabout and as a Stanhope. Later automobiles from this company were called the Caloric and Fostler.

The Chicago Caloric Engine Co provided the engines for the Chicago automobiles. These engines were unique in that a combustible charge of air and hydrocarbon is admitted and compressed in the lower and cooler part of the cylinder The charge is then transferred to the other end of the cylinder and ignited. The gases are then exhausted and at the same time a new charge is taken in and the operations repeated.
