Serge Bueno has completed a spectacular new restoration motorcycle that recalls the days of the sidecar.
Bueno’s “Majestic” bike is based on a 1930s build and boasts an undeniably unique art deco look, and, most importantly, seating for two. The Majestic, a classic touring bike, is believed to be one of just ten examples left in existence.
The first Majestic was designed by Georges Roy. Roy rejected the then-popular tubular frame, instead designing his own monocoque chassis out of sheet steel. Introduced at the 1929 Paris Motor Show, the motorcycle made a big impression for its subtle beauty and original design.
Los Angeles-based builder Bueno started his work by completely rebuilding the Majestic’s bodywork. Unable to get parts from the manufacturer, Bueno relied mainly on old photos to create his special rebuild. His dedicated craftsmanship resulted in a completely fabricated monocoque structure, and a sleek design that gives the impression the bike just rolled off the factory floor.
The revised and revivified Majestic motorcycle’s sidecar was designed by French bike expert Bernadet.
