The third wheel on the wagon.

A few blog posts ago I was out riding Sunbeam to look and hopefully repair a Villiers powered bike that would not start……..Well, I have been out riding again and this time he was home.


A lot of different bikes have been made for a variety of purposes, for instance trail, road racing, motocross, police and post-delivery.
But what purpose was this Monet Goyon tri cycle built for? A safe ride after a few stiff drinks?




Made in France in 1925.





The source of the problem: a powerful Villers engine, 150 cc.

Monet Goyon manufactured the Vélauto from 1919 to 1925, they were powered by engines of 117 cm3 and following 270 cm3 Villiers (manufactured under license). This is one of the ancestors of the scooter
