A little (easy) quiz ...

.. in fact it's only a reason to show you some old belgian bikes.

Who made this ?


M22 Cross
Number of cylinders : 1
Cubic capacity : 250
Stroke : 58 mm
Internal diameter of cylinder : 52 mm
Start of production : 1954
End of production : 1960

My eldest brother learned to ride on one of these whe he was an MP in the belgian Navy (They were still in use in 1968)

A few hints:
- It's belgian
- they no longer make bikes
- they also made cars, trucks and trolleybusses
- now, they only make guns (and weapons systems)
- they own Browning and Winchester
- they are very well known for customizing hunting weapons


A few other bikes they made:

Their very first:

1902
Number of cylinders : 1
Cubic capacity : 133
Stroke : 68 mm
Internal diameter of cylinder : 50 mm
It concerns a "motorised bicycle" (belt-driven on a wooden pulley at the rear)

.

1924 - M5O
Number of cylinders : 4
Cubic capacity : 748
Stroke : 88 mm
Internal diameter of cylinder : 52 mm
Start of production : 1923
End of production : 1926
Quantities produced : 1,208

.
Looks as if this next one has a boxer engine:

M12
Number of cylinders : 2
Cubic capacity : 1000
Stroke : 78 mm
Internal diameter of cylinder : 90 mm
Start of production : 1937
End of production : 1940
Quantities produced : 1,072

A complete overview of what they made (bikes, cars, etc) can be found HERE
