French 1929 Majestic Motorcycle

Born between WWI and WWII, the Majectic was the creation of George Roy. At the time, he thought that to increase his chances of success he must build a model inspired by automobile design. And because art–deco style is big all over Europe, he creates this full body with louvers streamlined machine. Specifications are 500 CC Chaise engine, hub steering, sliding pillar suspension and of course a French Blue paint job. Maybe because too futuristic, manufacturing stopped in 1933 with a total of about 100 Majestic produced..

    I saw an unrestored Majestic in a rural and almost forgotten French car museum about 20 years ago and since then has always been one of my favourite quirky bikes.

    The other thing with the Majestic is there were almost as many different types of engine used as there were bikes made. The frame is actually the body work you see, it being two pressed metal halves, so just about any small ( up to 500cc ish) engine would fit inside, and he used whatever he could get hold of or the customer wanted. Singles , twins and even a few 4 cylinders. In fact the Cleveland 4 cylinder was the original engine the bike was designed for but he seems to have supply issues so used whatever he could after that.

    Way ahead of his time.

    Doesn’t look that fun to ride, but it sure is cool to look at.

    Aha! Now we see the wellspring of Cyril’s imagination. 🙂

    Doc Robinson. I was thinking the same thing. Cyril, a fan of art deco, of course.

    What a incredible machine. Thinking outside the box.

    Tedder, I would get a tin of Humbrol #14 French blue model paint, paint something, get it spectogrammed and then get a match made with your favourite automotive paint.

    Humbrol Model paints are normally very well researched and acurate colour matches.
