Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Hildebrand & Wolfm ller was the world's first production motorcycle. Heinrich and Wilhelm Hidebrand were steam-engine engineers before Alois Wolfm ller agreed to finance them to produce their internal combustion Motorrad in Munich in 1894. The Hildebrand & Wolfm ller is credited as the world first because other possible claimants tend to be based on a bicycle chassis or were never put into production. Or both, e.g. Gottlieb Daimler's Reitwagen of 1885 was a one-off test-bed for an experimental engine in a bicycle chassis. The Felix Millet designed 'Motocyclette, ' of 1893 used an aviation-style radial five-cylinder engine, but never went into mass-production.show more
