1902 Steffey motorbike, like all early motorcycles, it is literally a motorized bicycle, what we might call today a moped. 250cc 2 stroke single-speed motor and pedals for human power. I came across this one at the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum in Birmingham, Alabama, which is well worth a visit if you have any love for things that go vroom.

I love the look of these early motorcycles, they seem almost steampunk, but cooler because all those brass fittings and glass bulbs are there for a reason.
