The “Pullman” was a courageous and innovative motorcycle.

The public showed interest and appreciation for such a distinctive bike, designed for comfort rather that brilliant performance.
The first series had a hand operated gearbox, whereas on the second series it was foot operated.

One aspect stood out more than others: the wheels were a medium diameter while the tyres were wide.

The frame was also an original curved single beam.
