Griffon 1902 200cc 1 cyl aiv



Griffon  ca 1902     1 ¾ HP   ca 200cc Zedel aiv  frame#26050

Griffon is one of the oldest French makes: motorcycle production started in 1902; this Zedel-engined example must be one of the earliest examples still around.   
The factory was situated in Courbevois, Paris and for many years this make was in the foreground  of French motorcycle manufacture. 
In the nineteen twenties Griffon was taken over by the giant firm of Peugeot. 
This very charming early veteran is in original, unrestored condition. 
It has coil ignition and sprung front forks.
