The end of the “flat tank” era with the fuel tank being moved to the top of the frame was not simply a stylistic choice but a change that led to a radical turning point in the history of motorcycling. In parallel, the engines were more powerful and the frames more robust. BMW, DKW, NSU and Zundapp, like Peugeot, Terrot and Motobecane continued to take the lion’s share of the European market, while in the United States, due above all to the Wall Street collapse (1929), the glorious marques that had produced the fabulous four-cylinder machines of the previous decades disappeared, leaving just Harley-Davidson and Indian. Featuring hundreds of photographs and documents.

  • BMW R5 500
