1867 Roper Steam Velocipede Replica

1867 Roper

1867 Roper Steam VelocidedeThe photo to the left is a replica of an 1867 Roper steam powered bike.  This museum quality replica was manufactured by Bill Eggers, owner and CEO of William Eggers Motorcycles.  You can see this incredible recreation down at the show.

In 1867, Sylvester Howard Roper created the bike that would lead to the creation of the motorcycles we are familiar with today.  His all new form of transportation was the first of it’s kind, a motorized bike.  This fascinating creation was powered by steam!  Although the use of steam engines did not catch on, Sylvester Howard Roper was an engineering pioneer.

Soon after his introduction of the 1867 Roper Steam Velocipede, others were inspired to work on similar “motor” projects.  The most well regarded was the development of the 1885 Daimler Reitwagen.  This was the first gas powered motorcycle. 

Bill Eggers


 

Bill Eggers created a museum quality replica of this early mode of transportation as well.  A Roper, a Daimler, and many other early forms of transportation have all been reproduced by Eggers.  When it comes to replicas, Bill Eggers is the master.  His handiwork can be found in museums throughout the country.  So, take a moment and visit Bill Eggers while at the show.  It will be like stepping back in time.

Speaking of antiques, if you have a passion for older forms of transportation just like Bill Eggers, then you’ll want to stop by the Antique Motorcycle Club of America and check out their favorite rides.

Yankee Chapter AMCAThe Antique Motorcycle Club of America

The Yankee Chapter of the AMCA returns to the motorcycle show with their latest display of antique motorcycles.  The AMCA defines an antique as at least 35 years old.  Be sure to stop by the Antique Motorcycle Club of America booth and see their members’ vintage rides and learn more about their organization and what they do throughout the year.
