Marvel & Curtiss Motorcycles

August 30, 2010

Earlier I wrote about the novel use of a single push/pull rod used for both valves on the Marvel / Curtiss motor.  Another interesting aspect of these bikes was the bifurcated front downtube.  Here is some period advertising and some quick pics that I’ve snapped of friends’ bikes.
