The 105-year-old 'motorbike'

It looks like a neglected bike long since consigned to the shed, but this two-wheeled contraption's value belies its rusty appearance.

The ancient bicycle is in fact a 1906 Indian Camelback, one of the first ever two-wheeled motorised machines and one which is hugely desirable to collectors.

Just 1,698 of the rare cycles were produced 105 years ago, with its 'unrestored' state meaning the relic could fetch as much as £50,000 at auction.



Relic: The 105-year-old Indian Camelback 'motorbike' is worth £50,000 thanks to its 'unrestored' appearance.
