MAG 1924 Pacing bike 1093 cc 2 cyl ioe



 MAG ca. 1924  Velodrome     stayer   machine  1093 cc IOE  V-twin  engine# 2C11 A no. 68029


These antique looking giants have been used on cycle tracks till relatively recently because it was very difficult to find modern machines that could match their enormous flexibility: without clutch or gears  such a machine could accelerate very steadily without jerking from almost walking speed to about  a hundred kilometres per hour.
This  machine has primary drive by chain to a countershaft and secondary dive by belt. 
For years  it   has been one of the pacing machines  of the Paris Velodrome;  until recently it was in the possession of a Paris based car collector.
