Following the invention by Gottlieb Daimler in 1885 of the surface vaporiser for supplying an ignitable air-petrol mixture, various specialised types were evolved for both cars and motor cycles. The example shown in this drawing is one of the best known of this period, and was used extensively on the De Dion motor tricycle.
