The world's first motorcycle with casting whells

If we now seeing a motorcycle ridden and carried more than two passengers on the highway, of course we assume that's a dangerous action. But it would be different if we see it in the days before World War II, when the price of a car far beyond the reach of most families, and make motorcycles as an alternative.
1927 Böhmerland Langtouren was the world's first motorcycle with the casting wheels. (Picture from:http://bit.ly/2MxteFO)
Well, in the past a motorcycle equipped with a sidecar so that it could felt safer while load more passengers on it and had become a common sight when used on the highway. But at that time there was also something different, namely a unique motorcycle created by a Czech engineer named Albin Liebisch who turned out to have a two-wheeled vehicle design philosophy that was different from most people at the time.
1927 Bohmerland Langtouren was applied with two gearboxes and two fuel-tanks as well. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2MxteFO)
Because instead of making motorbikes with sidecar, but instead he made a motorcycle design that is longer than an 'ordinary' motorcycle. Albin assumed that the unusual motorcycle, which he made for the manufacturer of Böhmerland in 1927 and was given the name Böhmerland Langtouren would be able to carry three passengers equally safely.
1927 Böhmerland Langtouren initially was used as an army transport motorcycle for up to three to four passengers on it. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/35YSooO)
With a longer wheelbase than a regular motorcycle, Albin thinks the motorcycle is easier to control when compared to a motorcycle with a sidecar. Even more unique, this motorcycle applies two gearboxes. The first gearbox is similar to other conventional motorbikes and is used by the rider, and the second gearbox is used by the passengers to help the rider change the gears.

Besides that there is also another uniqueness, this motorcycle has two tanks as well, one in front and the other one in the back. And the Böhmerland Langtouren uses a 603 cc single-cylinder engine, which turns out to be the world's first motorcycle to apply the casting wheels on both wheels.
At the beginning of this long motorbike was used as the army transport motorcycle for up to three to four passengers on it. And the chosen casting wheels because it's considered stronger given this motorcycle carried more passengers than the motorbikes in general. Unique isn't. Do you want to ride it?

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of the two-wheeled monster and stay alive with true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops...... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | GIZMAG] Note: This blog can be accessed via your smart phone.
