Aubier et Dunne engine no. 21228
New-Map 100cc moped  CA1933  P. Martin Lyon, Cadre No 51365
I recently bought this lightweight 100cc bike with A&Dunne engine. I'm anxious to date this engine and bike and why it has P.Martin, Lyon on the headstock instead of New-Map. It has been suggested he was a main dealer. Both brake backing plates are marked New-Map.
Any help/suggestions much appreciated. Thanks, Rob

I attach (I hope) a few pics of my bike. The link you gave suggests that P. Martin owned the New Map company, probably at the time this bike was made. Perhaps he made a few machines with his name on the headstock . It has "New-Map" on both brake backplates the typical pierced fork links, and the large diameter rubber mounted rear sprocket I have noticed on a few other lightweights by this maker. Note, it has an incorrect front wheel on it at the moment and the petrol tank is not the original. Any info, especially on the year of manufacture, would be much appreciated.

Paul Martin is mentioned in an article on Motosacoche France.
