Product Description

A cool original Griffon moped…

“Like many established cycle manufacturers, the French Griffon company constructed its first motorcycle by mounting a proprietary engine in one of its bicycle frames. That first Griffon motorcycle appeared around 1902 and the range expanded rapidly thereafter. Despite a well-deserved reputation for quality, Griffon was absorbed by Peugeot in 1932 and together with Aiglon, Automoto and its new owners, was reconstituted as France Motor Cycles”

This particular piece would date to the mid part of the 20th century, circa 1950s. We are simply offering this piece as a prop or display piece (or even as a restoration project for the avid motorcycle fan or collector). It’s rusty, tatty yet has buckets of character…

We know very little about motorbikes and mopeds therefore please do ask questions. It ‘free stands’ on its original stand, and most of the bike is there from what we can see. Please accept that we cannot describe everything about the bike as it sits! Also, this comes with no paperwork whatsoever, hence offering it primarily as a display piece…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The motorcycle is an original bike, yet we are unsure which parts are still present and which are missing. This is sold as seen in our pictures and would look awesome graced in a retail shop window or a man cave or games room. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
