1901-1962
French Motorcycle Forum

From 1901 to 1931 the factory address was:
Société des Cycles Automoto
55 av. de la Grande Armée
PARIS (17°)

Pioneer manufacturer Automoto built robust machines powered by proprietory engines from Blackburne, Chaise, Zurcher, JAP and Villiers, and after WWII mainly French AMC 250cc OHV engines and Aubier-Dunne two-strokes. Gearboxes supplied by Burman, Chaise, JAP and Peugeot.

Automoto built their own engines in the early years, and these were supplied to English manufacturer Acme.

The factory merged with the Peugeot group in 1931 and manufacture ceased in 1962.

Peugeot-built models included:
1949 Type AS (125 cm3)
1951 Type AVL (125 cm3)
1955 Type APGL (125 cm3)

Quite extensive model information is available at JLB-Créations

Front Mudguard Logo
Automoto A9
Good morning,

I am currently restoring the only Automoto bike in South Africa, so I do not have any people I can speak to. I am looking for a photo of the logo that goes onto the front mudguard of the bike. I would appreciate it if you can supply me with any help.

I have attached a photograph of the bike, prior to stripping for restoration.

Kind regards,

Garth Edwards
South Africa

Thanks for the reply. The Automoto is a 1928. I now have her completely stripped and am busy getting the dents out of the tins. The tank is going to be my biggest challenge as it is fairly rusted inside.

Kind regards,

Automoto AL9
I uploaded a few years ago my A9 Photo Derilict. I now have it on the road although not totally original. Success in the 2009 Banbury run (entry 126)
Oxford, UK

Automoto_AL9_126XUU_1.jpg

 

It's registered 1930. Unfortunately the front forks are not correct for the machine so I will have to make do for the time being. Its 350cc with a Campbell three speed Gearbox, AMAC Carb. On its first out (The rose of the shires run by Sunbeam owners club) it broke down about 10 miles from the end with a stripped Tappet bolt. I fixed that and took it on the Banbury Run and it completed it with no problems. So I am quite happy with the result. I even managed to be filmed by someone and it's on You tube (Banbury Run 2009) and I got my photo on the first page of the Banbury run website.

All the best
