12.  1914 Cyclone Stripped-Stock Model Racer.

    Cataloged as the Model 7, R-15, Cyclone sold this model to the sporting rider who wanted to race on the weekend.  This is the sole example of a stripped-stock model known to have survived.  It differs from the boardtrack racer by virtue of having a clutch and a rear brake.  Unlike the road model, the stripped-stock machine features dropped racing handlebars, no rear frame suspension, and a special rigid front fork.  Cyclones were not always painted yellow, this example is dark blue.
