New York. 100 Shrs Stock Certificate. I/U. VF condition. Black on light yellow paper, Early Motorcycle in center, S/N 57, Mansons are known to be Indian clones, and they used Harley Davidson front ends. They were first marketed in 1905 by Fowler-Manson-Sherman manufacturing in Chicago. The company billed itself as a manufacturer, but divisions of production and marketing are unknown. Manson was only around as a company for about 3 years. The Manson came with a Thor Engine and carburetor. The Manson is also equipped with chain drive, a yielding sprocket, grip control, and an Empire saddle. The box behind the seat, much like the Harley, is where the battery is stored, they are capable of up to 1,500 miles before having to be changed. Three regular batteries are used instead of special, more costly batteries. The gas tank holds a measly 4 quarts and the oil tank holds 2 pints. The Manson only held 4 quarts, but the motorcycle was capable of 75 miles per gallon. The bike could reach a top speed of 50 mph and costs between $210 and $225.
