Origins

This motorcycle was previously a part of another motorcycle museum before being purchased and modified by Foggy Mountain.

The Geneva steam bicycle was a steam powered motorcycle made by the Geneva Cycle Company, Geneva, Ohio in the United States in the late 19th century, in 1896. An example was displayed at The Art of the Motorcycle exhibit created by the Guggenheim Museum. The naptha-fired steam engine is based on a design by Lucius Copeland. The Geneva Cycle Company became part of the American Cycle Company about the turn of the century, and later the Geneva brand was acquired by the Pope and Westfield Manufacturing Companies.
