Allvelo Cycle Works (Allmänna Velocipedförsäljnings AB) was a company founded by Fritiof Karlström in Landskrona. They mostly made bicycles, but between 1903 and 1907 they assembled and sold CKD cars and trucks under their own name. For instance, they sold the US built Waltham Orient Buckboard as Allvelo Orient and Allvelo Pansarmobil Sport[1] and the French Orel as Allvelo Orel. They also sold a UK made truck under the name Allvelo Vulcan. In 1907 they made a prototype of a car of their own design, but it never entered into production. At most the company had about 150 employees.

It was a short-lived Swedish automobile built by the Allmanna Velociped-Aktiebolaget of Landskrona from 1904 to 1906. The company began by importing bicycles, but soon decided to purchase unassembled Waltham Orient Buckboards from the United States. These they assembled and sold as All-Velos; all told, probably around 50 were assembled. Most parts other than the steering, axles, and engines were of wood. Each car had a single-cylinder air-cooled engine mounted at the rear, with friction drive. Brakes were fitted on the right rear wheel only, and the cars had tiller steering.
