  1. A little history: Charles H. Metz, who in 1905 joined the Marsh Bros. to build the popular Marsh-Metz motorcycles, is credited with being the person who acutally coined the word, "motorcycle", in 1899 when he started advertising his own brand, the Orient-Aster. He also built the Orient racing bikes, the Oriten ten seater at the Ford Museum, Autogo motorized trikes and quadricycles, the Orient Buckboard - then the cheapest car in America - and later the Metz car with friction drive.
