Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Minerva was a prominent Belgian luxury automobile manufactured from 1902 until 1938. In 1883, a young Dutchman, Sylvain de Jong settled in Antwerp, Belgium. Minerva started out manufacturing standard safety bicycles in 1897, before in 1900 expanding into light cars and "motocyclettes," particularly motorized bicycles which were a forerunner of motorcycles. They produced lightweight clip-on engines that mounted below the bicycle front down tube, specifically for Minerva bicycles, but also available in kit form suitable for almost any bicycle. The engine drove a belt turning a large gear wheel attached to the opposite side of the rear wheel as the chain.show more
