Leo, a very rare motorcycle.

While cruising the net over Christmas I ran into a blog post about a rare bike made in California...oh about 107 years ago.


A 1905 Leo

It was found in storage at a museum in Massachusetts. It was built in Oakland California, and is possibly the only one left. Little is known about the history of this particular bike.

There is a possibility that the factory or shop where this bike was built was destroyed in the 1906 earthquake.

It'll be interesting to see what this bike will bring at auction. It will also be interesting to see if any other Leo motorcycles will appear someday.
