Photobucket



This early motorcycle was built by the famous bicycle manufacturer of Riley in 1903. Like many other early motorcycles it still retains many features usually found on a bicycle, including stirrup type brakes, pedal and chains to the back wheel (for help in starting the engine) and a cycle frame, reinforced to carry the weight of engine, and very flat petrol tank
