At the end of 1923 FN marketed a 350 cc  single cylinder ohv with unit construction engine and horizontally split crankcase. 
This model, the M60, was the start of a successful new line of models in a period in which the heavy and expensive four cylinder was quickly loosing ground. 
Two years later a bigger 500cc brother was brought out, the M 67 with bore and stroke dimensions of  85×87 mm.  
The M67 was very successful in sporting events; production of the model ended in 1934. 
This machine is the “Comfort” version, which means it is equipped with balloon tyres. 
The machine was a museum exhibit for many years and has been partly restored some decades ago.
