Have you ever seen the French Majestic Motorcycle created in 1929? One of the most weird motorcycles designs I’ve seen.

Stumbled upon this page by coincidence The Vintagent that has great description of the crazy machine.

Here’s a video where they take a restored Majestic for a test run.

    That thing is definitely weird! How does it steer? The front wheel looks locked into place and it has no forks.
    I’ve never seen anything remotely like it.

    You are right. I have no idea. Must be something that turns in there somewhere.

    That is so neat. Would love to see it up close and ride it. Nice read and thanks for posting. Ride safe.

    What is the max speed of that model? Really cool!

    Wow that thing is so crazy looking that it makes it look pretty cool. It’s the boat of all bikes. I can’t believe how big it is. I wouldn’t be able to ride since I’m only 5 foot with shoes on but I wouldn’t mind being on the back while someone that new what they were doing was driving. Great find thank you for sharing this with all of us.

    That looks incredibly uncomfortable to ride. But kinda cool looking though.

    No clue what the max speed is. I’m not sure I would want to try and find it.

    Very cool bike. Looks like hub-center steering (HCS) similar to the Yamaha GTS1000 or Bimota Tesi.

    I’m impressed,…mostly because it’s from the 1920′s but also because I’ve never heard of Majestic motorcycles.
