1930 Dresch Monobloc Inline Twin

Two cylinder 500cc inline, that is, one cylinder in front, the other behind it. Uses a magneto for ignition, lever shift. Has a small generator for lights, but carries no battery nor brake light. SHAFT DRIVE. A good runner. These French bikes were used by police departments as well. This example came from a German collection and bears a front fender plate that says 1929, although one listing here only shows the model being made from 1930 to 1935, so more research needs to be done.
