Hirondelle Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Hirondelle 1921-1954 (some sources give 1914)

Hirondelle machines were built by Manufacture Francaise d’Armes et Cycles de Saint-Etienne (Manufrance) and often displayed an MF logo. Possibly related to Deronziere.

Established in 1885, Manufrance was France's first mail order company, with an annual catalogue, known as la Manu. It offered a wide range of products, the most famous being guns, bicycles and sewing machines. After WW2, the company introduced cyclemotors and mopeds, with some success.
 

The 1914 Hirondelle Legere had a 332cc SV engine.
The 1959 125cc model had an Ydral engine
