Formerly producers of tools, coffee mills, umbrella spikes and corsetry, Peugeot commenced its long-standing connection with transportation in 1882 when it added cycle manufacture to its portfolio. One of the pioneering firms of the French motorcycle industry, Peugeot followed the familiar progression: first adding proprietary clip-on engines to its bicycles before building complete machines of its own manufacture. Having hitherto relied on proprietary power units, the firm introduced its own in 1903. Using a Peugeot v-twin engine, Norton-mounted Rem Fowler won the inaugural Isle of Man TT race in 1907 and the French make featured prominently in the first ever motorcycle race to be held at Brooklands when, on Easter Monday 1908, a brace of Peugeot-powered NLGs finished 1st and 2nd. The works Peugeots were a dominant force in motorcycle racing in the years immediately before and after The Great War, thanks to a succession of innovative overhead-camshaft designs by Jean Antoinescu. After WWI the roadster range expanded to include two-stroke utility models such as that offered here. An older restoration, the machine was purchased for the Collection in 2007 from a private seller in Barcelona.
