Avol Scooters

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured: 1948-1949, Orleans, France

Avol scooters, designed by Maurice Avol (b. 1895), were constucted largely of aluminium which was moderatly plentiful after the war. It is understood that three prototypes were built around 1949, the last of which was manufactured by the company W. Baudin of Orléans using an Ydral engine of unusual displacement, 130cc, and a wide-ratio gearbox.
