PDC were motorcycles sold by the Imperial Motor Co , from 1903 to 1905.

The firm offered a range of solos plus a forecar attachment. Engine sizes were 2hp, 2.5hp, 2.75hp and 3hp. The front brake was an external-contracting band. In all other respects it was a primitive that was typical of the era, and so it did not last long on the market.
