11 Motorcycle Madness The very first bicycle was created by Kirkpatrick Macmillan in 1839. The first motorcycles were simply bicycles with small engines attached. In 1867 an American inventor named Sylvester Howard Roper created the first motorcycle,which was a bicycle with a coal burning motor to power it. By 1885, two Germans named Gottlieb Daimler and Paul Maybach, had designed a wooden framed contraption powered by a gasoline motor, having two large wheels and two smaller “training” wheels, and this invention was the one recognized as being the official first motorcycle.
