The Hildebrand & Wolfmüller motorcycle is the first-ever motorcycle to be put into production in 1894. The very first one ever produced was found in a barn the United States and has been there for ages but is now sold at an auction in London for Â£86,200 (US $131.000). It will now be returning to its’ country of origin, Germany, where it’s simply called “motorrad” (“motorcycle” – keep it simple, right?).
Check out the video below for a similar motorcycle produced only 2 years later, in 1896:
