Cointot Freres

Vintage French Mopeds of the 1950s

1953 Ducati Cucciolo Cointot Freres Model CM504

This is an early Ducati Cucciolo cyclemotor that my friends across the Channel found for me.

All French Cucciolos were bespoke creations, top-of-the-range mopeds with limited production.

With its integral petrol tank, the Cointot Freres machine is particularly attractive.

This model was built between 1953 and 1954.

Like all French Cucciolos, the engine was built under license by Rocher who, in turn, licensed various bicycle manufacturers to fit them to their machines.
