A Brief History of the Marque
George Roy built his first machines in 1923, the New Motorcycle. These were not a commercial success, and in 1928 (or 1929, depending on source) he produced the magnificent Majestic in partnership with the Delachanal concern, who manufactured the famous French marque Dollar. The Majestic was highly innovative, sporting such visionary features as centre hub steering, an automobile-like pressed steel chassis, and telescopic front suspension. The Dollar marque was acquired in about 1931 (as the depression years were biting seriously) by Metallurgical and Industrial Omnium, owner of Chaise. Over a period of five years roughly 100 machines were produces with 350cc & 500c single-cylinder engines from Chaise, JAP V-twins, and four-cylinder engines from both Chaise and Cleveland. Production ceased in 1933.
