griffon (france, 1901-1955)

The well established Griffon Bicycle Company built their first motorcycles in 1902, using one of their bicycle models as a basis to which they fitted an engine. Development was rapid, and the following year they presented 10 different models at the Paris Show. Racing success followed, and in 1904 one of their machines achieved the then astonishing speed of 65 mph.

After more than a quarter of a century, having led the field in competition and built many fine road machines, the company was absorbed by Peugeot in the late 1920s.
