GMCC was a motorcycle produced from 1902 to 1903 by the General Motor Manufacturing Company

This basic machine had chain drive, a clutch for starting and magneto ignition. The chain was mounted vertically ahead of the pedals in a primitive frame, typical to the period. It had rigid forks and a contracting-band front brake. The left pedal was used to start the engine and the clutch was engaged to move away.
