    The Simplex looked cool but it had a late model motor. If it were a car, they would call it a resto-mod.

    "Also of note is this 1902 Rambler Model B from the Indian Motorcycle Museum. Manufactured by Colonel Albert Pope’s American Cycle Manufacturing Company of New York, this Rambler motorcycle is in almost unbelievable original, unrestored condition. (Yes, that’s correct – this motorcycle wears its original paint from 110 years ago. With the exception of an old touch-up on the gas tank the entire machine is in a complete time-capsule state.)"

    A footnote about the Marman company founder, Herbert Manfred "Zeppo" Marx: Offstage, Marx had great mechanical skills and was largely responsible for keeping the Marx family car running. Marx later owned a company which machined parts for the war effort during World War II, Marman Products Co. Inglewood, CA, later known as the Aeroquip Company. This company produced a motorcycle, called the Marman Twin[5] and the Marman clamps used to hold the "Fat Man" atomic bomb inside the B-29 bomber, Bockscar.[6] He also founded a large theatrical agency with his brother Gummo, and invented a wristwatch that would monitor the pulse rate of cardiac patients and give off an alarm if they went into cardiac arrest.[6]
