Official Spring Release, "Cyclone"
Words from Scott
"I have photographed many rare motorcycles over the years, but I don’t think anything could compare to the rarity of my newest motorcycle painting, Cyclone. I have been working on this piece for over ten years. I'm happy to see it finished and ready for the public."
- Scott Jacobs
Cyclone is a motorcycle that was manufactured in St. Paul, Minnesota by Joerns Motor Manufacturing Company from 1912 through 1917. It was a short-lived brand but made its mark by breaking records on the board track racing circuits of 1910 through the 1930s.
Unfortunately, because of Henry’s Model T and the Great Depression, Joerns Manufacturing Company was out of business by 1916. There are only a handful of Cyclone’s left in the world and that’s what makes them so famous nowadays.
In 2015, a 1915 Cyclone Board Track Racer previously owned by Steve McQueen was sold for $852,000 at Mecum Auctions which broke the record for the highest sale price of a motorcycle at the time.
