1929 Majestic... I didn't realize the innovative steering they used, and that the paint had a "crackle" factory option



my previous post http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2009/12/1929-majestic.html  has a good and thorough variety of photos, of a couple bikes, from different angles, but I was more fascinated by the overall design than the steering.. and didn't notice it's very uncommon

but if you click over to http://thevintagent.blogspot.com/2013/10/truly-majestic.html you'll see more photos and get a good description of the steering
pillar rods allow sprung vertical movement, and the steering rod can be seen connected to the central hub by a 'c' shaped lever. The front hub has plenty to do, with a large bearing and brake mechanism inside.
