The 1925 Bohmerland motorcycle was made in Czechoslovakia. It featured an air-cooled, single cylinder four stroke engine. The ignition was by magneto. The engine displacement was 398cc. Fuel was supplied via a single carburetor. Getting the power to the ground was by a four speed transmission that was hand shifted. The suspension featured front and rear leaf springs that were 1/4 elliptical. Drum brakes were on both the front and rear. The motorcycle weighed in at 275 pounds. Top speed for the bike was 50 m.p.h.
According to the museum's fact sheet "The Bohmerland is one of the most unusual machines in the history of motorcycles. Designed to seat three people in tandem, some versions were almost ten feet long. They were available in bright colors, yellow and red, yellow and black, or yellow and green, and cast aluminum wheels were another innovation. Approximately 1,000 machines were built between 1924 and 1939 and only a handful remain. This machine is the oldest Bohmerland known to exist."
