Historical Notes on the Marque
126 route d'Orléans
René Gillet produced motorcycle from 1898 until 1957, they made their own engines, two and four strokes, from 49 cc to 1000 cc. The 750 and 1000 cc models, which had side valve V twin engines, were very common in the French army and police before WWII.
Thanks to J Roquecave.

I just got hold of a bike that looks like it was used in the war. The only thing I can see is the name "Rene Gillet " on the tank and trans. cover. Where can I get some info on these things? It's a V-Twin engine like an old 30-50 Harley

Hi Sheldon, here's the translation. I found there was
a brand "Rene Gillet". Maybe "Guiller" is not correct!?!
Since 10 years I'm the owner of a "Rene Guiller G 90" with 175cc A.M.C. engine. I couldn?t find any information (in literature, museums and parts markets) or contacts to other owners. Any information or contacts would be appreciated.
I couldn't find "Rene Guiller" or the former name "Guiller"
in your list. Please add this brand and my request.

Can you translate this for me? I tried BabelFish but it gave such a poor translation on this that I wasn't sure of it all. On my list of French manufacturers there is a "Rene Gillet" but it sounds like he is saying that his bike says "Rene Guller". I wonder if I might have it spelled wrong?

ich besitze seit ca 10 jahren eine " rene guiller g 90 " mit 175ccm a.m.c motor. leider habe ich bis heute weder in einschlägiger literatur oder in museen oder auf märkten informationen bekommen, noch weitere besitzer kennengelernt. über informationen oder kontakte währe ich sehr dankbar.
da ich auch in der hiesigen auflistung weder den firmennamen " rene Guiller " noch den davor benutzte "guiller " finde bitte ich um eintragung des Motorradherstellers und aufnahme meiner such-mail.
mit freundlichen grüssen
