Prior to 1951, the lightweight motorcycles produced by Simplex Manufacturing of New Orleans were named Servi-Cycles. By 1952, they were simply renamed Simplex and came to include a variety of attractive motorbikes, many of which were capable of rather terrifying speeds.

This particular maroon Simplex with cream-colored pin striping is an excellent example, restored to the highest standards. Its paint has been professionally applied to a very smooth, shiny appearance. The tailpipes, frame, crash bar, and parcel carrier are all finished in gloss black and likewise exhibit professional workmanship. Although the chrome components have aged slightly, they remain very presentable, as does the original tobacco leather seat. As for the engine, it has been restored to as-new condition and remains very clean and free of dirt or grime. Quick, exhilarating, and complete with an odometer, speedometer, headlight, and taillight, this Simplex bridges the narrow gap between lightweight and full-grown motorcycles.
