MONET & GOYON

 

During the First World War, Adrien Goyon financed engineer Joseph Monet to manufacture disability vehicles for war veterans. Their company Monet & Goyon was formed in 1917.

Their first engine, in 1919, was a 117cc autowheel, which they also used in their Automouche and Vélauto three-wheeled scooters up to 1925 (above). This was sometimes proclaimed as the World’s first scooter (1919), though it wasn’t: the American 1916 Autoped was actually the first.

 

 

Over the years the company made a variety of odd-looking three wheelers (triporteurs). Above, you can see a Velocimane Model E, while below is a 270cc Cyclecarette.*

 

Monet Goyon manufactured various motorcycles up to the 2nd World War including, from 1931 onwards, a series of 98cc Villiers-powered BMA’s (‘Bicyclette Moteur Auxiliaire’ – the equivalent of our pedal-assisted autocycles). They had always been interested in the ‘lower end’ of the market, ie making cheap machines to get poorer folks on the road.

Below, you can see an example of the first postwar ‘moteur auxiliaire’ a Monet Goyon Motorox.

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.
