Product info

Vintage French Mobylette model or ‘cyclomoteur’ by Favor, type Mosquito, 38 cc.

This type was produced from 1946, a bicycle with a small auxiliary motor.

Favor was a French company manufacturing motorcycles, mopeds and cycles in Chamalières near Clermont-Ferrand. Founded in 1898 by Étienne Guillaume, it closed its doors in 1977.

The ‘cyclomoteur’ has a great authentic patina. The motor has been standing still for a long time. The engine needs to be cleaned and checked. It is not known if it still runs or not. The pistons of the engine are moving, which is a good sign. The engine is “loose”, not stuck. This model has been used for decoration purposes.

This is a great and fun project for any early motorcycle lover.

Please keep in mind that we only sell vintage and antique pieces and none of our pieces should be considered new or in perfect condition. All of our vintage products show the rich beauty and history of their life with the knocks and bumps of many years of use. We restore our pieces so they will be clean and in a good working condition. However we try to minimise restoration to keep every piece as original as possible.

The physical object can differ slightly in colour from the object as presented online. We have made every effort to display colours accurately, but cannot guarantee that the pictures accurately reflect the colour of those goods in real life.
