Introduced in 1907. Discontinued in 1917. Not a rare back design, but certainly uncommon. Also available in the United Kingdom (for more information, click on "UK" above). The original Motorette was not a "one-way" design as many earlier Bicycle backs were, but the design of Motorette No. 2 provided a more modern and graphic update of the back. See a comparison of the unusual vehicles in Motorette No. 1 and Motorette No. 2 in the first image, below.
