1905 FN Motorcycle

Belgian firm Fabrique National d’Herstal was originally an arms manufacturer, who – much like their British counterparts BSA – turned to bicycles, and later motorcycle production. At the Paris Cycle Show of 1905, FN stunned onlookers with the introduction of the world’s first four-cylinder motorcycle. The 363 cc side-valve inline-four sat in a purpose-built frame, and featured shaft drive to complement the engine’s exceptionally smooth running. This desirable 1905 FN dates from the first full year of four-cylinder production and is fastidiously restored to a high standard. It is beautifully detailed and correctly finished in black with a gorgeous polished brass tank. This magnificent collector piece will hold a place of pride in virtually any vehicle, vintage motorcycle, or automobilia collection. This vehicle just arrived. A complete description is coming soon.
