    This is not the original, I believe that belongs to Indian. However, it is a great example of one and good looking model at that.

    The Sears & Roebuck 1914 Deluxe Motorbike:

    Check out the dual drive system: real working crank and pedals to one side, and a second sprocket and chain for the motor. The 35 cubic inch single produced about 2 horsepower. It has a leaf sprung front suspension and a spring seat. Oh yeah. Rear coaster brakes. It can go about 30 mph. Sound familiar? :D

    Hmmmm.....looks familiar.....

    SC Green Motor's motorized Rover GX26 model.
