A Brief History of the Marque
Usine a Albert (Somme)
Rochet produced two-speed single cylinder IOE motorcycles for several years prior to World War One including an in-line vertical twin and a tri-car. All models were chain-driven, and the unit-construction (bloc-moteur) twin is believed to be the first example of such an engine.
1910 Motocyclette Types: MG, MI, MH
After WWI the marque was based in Paris and machines were produced until at least 1927.
Rochet engines were supplied to Roland.

Rochet Belt driven
I was recently in the small town of Oatman, Arizona. There is a man that has an original Rochet Belt driven motorcycle on display in their window. They told me it was extremely rare. I could not find any info on this bike.

I have found reference to a Rochet motorcycle being raced in Australia prior to WW1. I am interested in any information on these bikes as I have a Rochet Schneider car. Is there a connection? Is it the same Rochet? Any information appreciated and if you would like details on the article regarding the Rochet motorcycle please let me know.
