One of the founders of Waltham Manufacturing Company, Charles Herman Metz, ended up leaving to form the Metz Motorcycle Company in 1902. Fast forward to 1905, and he had merged with the Marsh brothers to create the American Motorcycle Company, which put out the Marsh-Metz motorcycle.
Though they were one of the first manufacturers to offer a V-Twin, this example features their single. It’s not much more than a motorized bicycle, though racing versions put out 6 horsepower and could hit 60 miles per hour. This bike is still rocking the original paint and while it runs and rides, you’ll need to find a seat and the exhaust is cracked.
