Early Motorcycle Manufacturer: 1932 FN M67

'32 FN

FN produced motorcycles from 1889-1963 in Herstal, Belgium and was one of the early and major motorcycle manufactures. They were the first to install a 4 cylinder motor in a motorcycle and they had all kinds of racing success with their shaft drive bikes! Listed here on eBay and parked in Spearfish, South Dakota is this 1932 FN M67 with a BIN of $3,900.

This M67 isn’t one of their 4 clyinder models, but is actually powered by a 500 cc single. This bike was sold new to a dealer in Aarschot, Belgium. The seller speculates that a WWII vet shipped this back to the US. The front end, as per the seller, does appear to be complete. There is some pitting on the front fork and on the frame.

'32 FN tank

The seller says the gas tank needs to be repaired. It appears to also be missing a few bits and pieces.

Most of the brackets for the frame are included. The seller believes the missing bits are: the seat, rocker arm setup, the carburetor and some brake parts.

'32 FN Bosch

If you have a question about what parts are here, the seller will dig through the tub and see what is there.

It has been reported that not many M67 motorcycles were produced. And how many could be left? The seller points out that this is an antique and it is sold “as-is” and there will be no returns. If you want to see more images the seller will be happy to provide if you ask. Any bike-people out there that want a 1932 FN M67 or is this one best off going to one of the Leno’s of this world?

Motor-on,

Robert

    Back in my early days on a U-Boat, we saw these all the time. We had a hold just chock full of them! Oh how I loved these motorized velocipedes.

    I didn’t quite love them as much as I’ve come to appreciate 70’s vans with intense shag interiors, or shortened customized cars. I know, I know, I may say things to the contrary some days, but on the days I remember to take, as I call them, Carters Little Liver Pills, my outlook is much more chipper!

    Keep up the great work fellas!

      Man, you aught keep up with whatever it is you’re prescribed. You’re way easier to deal with.

      These remind me of the Simplex that my dad had. He’d got it from a now departed old guy that had it for who knows how long. What’s interesting is it came with a cast iron engine, and also in a crate an aluminum engine that looked just like it but had a military tag on it. Makes me wonder if it was an airforce bike or something. Had a hawaii or alaska, can’t remember which, plate on it that was #30 or something, astoundingly low for a motorcycle plate.

    You really have to use your imagination on this one. Can you believe it once looked like this? Be a rough ride, for sure. http://www.yesterdays.nl/images/FN-1929-M67B-523-2.jpg
