FN was founded in the city of Herstal in 1899 in order to manufacturer Mauser Model 89 rifles for the Belgian government. FN experimented with single-cylinder machines, producing their first motorbike in 1901.
This was followed by a shaft-driven 188 cc in 1903. It led to the development of the 1907 FN Four, the world’s first production four-cylinder motorbike.
From 1924, all models came with a less expensive chain drive. These models ranged from 596 ccs to 198 ccs. Variation increased after WW2, with 249 cc, 344 cc, 444 cc and 498 cc models being produced.
