Avondale or Avonvale was a motorcycle produced in 1903.

A cycle dealer named Price, of High Street, Evesham, Worcestershire, designed the machine. It had a 223cc Buchet four-stroke engine clipped above the downtube of a bicycle frame with Chater-Lea fittings. With direct-belt drive and braced forks, the design was basic and primitive, so production was limited.

Of primitive design, it probably had an imported or bought-in engine with belt-drive.
