    Default 1906 Griffon/Zedel

    I found this 1906 Griffon Zedel model 3 1/2. In a basement in my home town. The man who owned it got it from the original owner in 1920. No one had ridden it since 1909. It started without too much trouble and runs well. V-Twin, 500 cc, belt drive single speed, no clutch. Any more out there?

    There's a fully restored and running 1906 vee twin model in Belgium - I have pictures of it, if you'd like them, then email me. Just can't see how to post them on here.
