A Brief History of the Marque
Manufactured by Cycles Rhonson
195 Avenue Félix-Faure
The brand name is a contraction of the names of the two rivers which meet at Lyon, Rhône and Saone.
After WWII Rhonson became part of the VAP group, joining ABG, Alcyon, Armor, La Française Diamant, Gentil, Labor, Lucer and Thomann. Many of the marques shared the same components, and some models were marketed with the badge and little else changed under different brands.
