THE WALTHAM MANUFACTURING COMPANY, of Waltham, Mass., has secured the exclusive American rights in the gasolene motors perfected and produced by De Dion, Bouton et Cie., and are now building tandems, tricycles, quadricycles, light carriages,’and trailers, equipped with this motor.

The De Dion motor has proved itself a leader in its class and has earned that rare title in the gasolene-engine field, ” Perfect.” Its high efficiency, light weight, certainty in operation, and simplicity are well known to all who have made an investigation of this subject. In combination with the manufactures of the Waltham Manufacturing Company (the makers of the ” Orient ” bicycle), a result is reached that ensures satisfaction, if skill in design and excellence of workmanship are factors.

One of the models now ready for the market is shown in the above cut. It is a convertible motor-cycle, capable of change in a few minutes from a single-seated tricycle to a comfortable two-seated quadricycle, as shown. One of these machines recently made the trip from Waltham to New York, 251 miles, in seventeen hours, at an expense of 45 cents in fuel. Price of this machine, complete, $600.

A booklet illustrating and detailing the features of this and other models, on request.
