1898, looking back to 1895

OK so I’m currently concentrating on 1902, but I was delighted to come across an 1898 essay in The Cycle Age And Trade Review reviewing the motor-cycle market since 1895. I stuck it at the top of the year so it’s easy to find. Well worth a look.

State-of-the-art motor cycling circa 1898—the top-heavy Werner was inclined to fall over, at which point its hot-tube ignition would invariably burst into flames. Not for the faint-hearted.
