Page 163. 1935 ‘New Map Baby’ 100cc. Fichtel & Sachs Two-Speed. SOLD

1935 ‘New Map Baby’

Fichtel & Sachs 98cc Two-Speed Engine


The New Map Baby motorcycle is a very rare beast by now. It’s interesting that soon after production of this model ceased, in 1936, New Map introduced a New Map Baby miniature car with the same engine.

The Fichtel & Sachs engine was the German equivalent of the British Villiers engine. After this engine was introduced in the early thirties, over 50 different manufacturers introduced a lightweight motorcycle to their range, powered by the Fichtel & Sachs 100cc engine.


SUMMARY: Everything on this unusual motorcycle is in first class condition.

The brush-painted metalwork is in very good condition.

Mechanically everything is first class.

Fichtel & Sachs spares are easy to obtain should any be needed.

So it’s a practical 75-year-old machine to own and use.

It starts easily and runs well.

Once registered (using the French docs) it’s ready to jump on and ride.

NEWMAP1

The 100cc ‘New Map Baby’ lightweight motorcycle was added to their range in 1933 and produced until 1936.

New Map used the same Fichtel & Sachs engine when they introduced a new ‘New Map Baby’ in 1938. This new model was a microcar . When production resumed after WW2 it was known as the Rolux Baby (below).

The company also made the utilitarian Solyto three-wheeled van (below).

***********

VEHICLE CONDITION: Vintage vehicles are wonderful beasts

– but each has an individual personality and they sometimes have bad days just like you and me.
You will need basic mechanical skills (or a local mechanic) to use one on a regular basis.

Two-strokes invariably need basic servicing before starting them, if they’ve been left to stand for more than 3 weeks or so.

These are rare vehicles whose values are not necessarily based on running order.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE ABOVE, PLEASE DO NOT BID.
