Watch a Rare 1929 Majestic Motorcycle in Action
This 1929 Majestic motorcycle was spotted in Bavaria by Paul d’Orléans who even captured some video of this beautiful bike in action. It was built between the wars and epitomized the Art Deco aesthetic. It's completely unique and quite beautiful. It has a streamlined torpedo-like design that was very modern at the time. The shape was meant to convery that the bike was fast, which it wasn't, but they did nail it in the looks department. RELATED: Motorcycle School: Essential for Not Dying Immediately
The Majestic was built similarly to other vehicles of the time with C-section steel channels for the chassis in twin, low rails on either side of the engine. The engine itself is covered with steel mesh and the body has louvers to help dissipate the heat.

The truly standout feature is with the hub-center steering. It was one of the first motorcycles to feature this type of design and it was beautifully executed. According to The Vintagent, although the 500cc Chaise engine isn't powerful and lacks by today's standards, it was still an incredible ride.
