1919 Cyclauto

1919 Cyclauto

Description

1919 Cyclauto

The engineer Charles Rouquet, already inventor of the Magneto Standard, was working on a motor vehicle project well before the First War (from 1911) and tested different approaches (3 and 4 wheels) to create a reliable, easily usable and economical vehicle.

At the end of the war, he managed to participate in the 1919 Motor Show in the new category of Cyclecars (vehicles for 2 people maximum, weighing less than 350 kg and with an engine of less than 1100 cc to take advantage of more advantageous taxation).

The Cyclauto presented here is equipped with an Anzani engine, 750 cm3 4-stroke twin cylinders.
The front suspension is provided by an “elastic” fork (motorcycle type) and 2 cantilevers springs at the rear.

Following the success encountered during this show (and even an article in Moto revue), he managed to raise the necessary capital (thanks to the financial support of the exiled Polish Princes André (1864-1954) and Casimir (1897-1980) Poniatowski, father and son, as well as Léon Féval, director of the French engine company ABC – Gnome et Rhône) to create his company on March 13, 1920 and his factory at 100 rue Rouget-de-l'Isle in Suresnes.
