Phebus Cycles - c 1900

Print Description

Phebus Cycles - c 1900.

Taking its name from Phoebus, the Greek God who drove the sun across the heavens each day, Phebus motor vehicles were built between 1899 and 1903 by Noe Boyer & Cie in the Parisian suburb of Suresnes. Initially Phebus offered tricycles fitted with various proprietary engines, one of which was ridden by Charles Jarrott at a breakneck speed of 39mph at Crystal Palace Velodrome. The great French rider Beconnais also won the prestigious Coupe des Motocycles de l’ACF in 1899 on a Phebus bicyclette, covering 100km in 1hr 46mins.

Although best known for its early motorised tricycles and subsequent automobiles, Phebus was also a well-respected cycle manufacturer. The company started producing bicycles in Nantes in 1889.

    Paper: Our beautiful pictures are printed on either:

    • Pearl Textured Fine Art Giclée paper - Hahnemühle Pearl (285gsm). Unless specified, all our prints are on this museum-grade paper.
    If you'd prefer a different paper, please get in touch. 
      Giclée printers use a higher quality of fade-resistant, archival, pigment-based inks. When applied to high quality archival substrates, like, for example, the Hahnemühle cotton-based, acid free Rag papers we use, this results in an unbeatable archival lifespan of up to 200 years.
