Pello was a motorcycle produced in 1914 by Pell and Parker of Peterborough, Cambridgeshire.

These cycle-makers bought six Arno engines with the intention of fitting them into their own locally-made frames with Druid forks and direct-belt drive. A farmer bought one machine but fell off on his maiden outing so never rode it again. More than fifty yeas later it appeared once more and was eventually run in.
