[yellow 1915 Cyclone Motorcycle]
    Perhaps the most legendary of all pioneer motorcycles produced in the United States was the overhead-cam Cyclone, manufactured by the Joerns Motor Manufacturing Company of St. Paul. Minnesota.

    Designed by Andrew Strand, a Swedish-born engineer with experience in the automotive industry, the Cyclone was first offered for sale to the public in the Summer of 1914.

    Two models were catalogued: a standard road bike, and a stripped-stock version. Following industry practice, the Joerns company also built racers to showcase their innovative engine design.
