1894-1902

An active inventor, with a number of patents to his credit Stephen M. Balzer produced the Balzer Cyclecar which was only six feet long and three feet wide. With the small wire wheels this was a typical American Cyclecar. However, this Cyclecar was not very successful. The front wheels are 10 inches smaller than the rear.

The front wheels are mounted on bicycle type forks that are connected by a tie-rod and steered by a tiller. Balzar's first Cyclecar had a three-cylinder, air-cooled, rotary-type engine that revolved in a vertical plane around the stationary crankshaft. Turning with the crank case was a stub shaft. The transmission had three forward speeds and no reverse. The driver selected the desired gear ratio by operating a lever and the same lever also controlled the clutch.
