A unique Switzerland-made Schmid motorcycle

If you are looking for a unique form of motorized vehicle that may not yet be widely known. Now, this is a classic motorbike with a unique appearance currently on display at the Hockenheim Ring Motor-Sport-Museum. The figure of a motorcycle that appears unpretentious (as it is) with a fairly unique shape.

This motorcycle then known as Schmid motorcycle was built in 1923 as a brainchild and works of an engineer from Geneva, Switzerland named Carl Schmid. It said he was built this motorcycle bodywork as a masterpiece for automotive carosserie internships, to prove his expertise in panel beating technique and aerodynamic design.

Visually, this motorcycle uses a monocoque construction and front fenders as a wheel suspension with a swing arm that has been integrated with the fenders, then the middle to the rear are all covered with a unique art deco-styled fairing without suspension on the rear wheels.

It looks very heavy with steel panels, as its visual weight. And it was driven by a 175cc-capacity OHV engine that is capable of spewing power of 3 horsepower, so that can make this unique motorcycle capable of running up to a top speed of 70 kph. And makes the Wooler 'Flying Banana' in the background look unspecial too!

Uniquely, this classic motorcycle has applied a hydraulic brake system, starter, and coupled with the use of a four-cylinder in-line engine. So that makes it a complete picture of a simple monocoque construction system from a full fairing motorcycle that was coming from the 1920s.
That makes us very impressed with those (classic motorcycle designers) who are often far ahead of their time even though economically the designers and manufacturers can be said to not achieve success. But at least today they are considered a milestone in motorcycle technology through their remarkable motorbike workmanships. Unfortunately, it isn't known whether the motorcycle is still functioning properly after being a museum display item

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of the two-wheeled monster and stay alive with true safety riding. God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops.... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | WOLFSBURG CITY TOUR | BEST MOTORCYCLE]
