A motorcycle is a two or three wheeled vehicle with a handle bar steering and saddle style seat. The 1885 German Daimler Reitwagen made by Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach in Germany was the first internal combustion, petroleum-fueled motorcycle. Ogden Bolton Jr. of Canton Ohio m however, filed a patent application for an "electrical bicycle" 19 September 1895. And on 8 November of the same year, another patent application for an "electric bicycle" was filed by Hosea W. Libbey of Boston. There are many variants of motorcycles for different applications and user groups and we celebrate this invention here and hope you will enjoy our selection of photos.
