Historical Notes

Manufactured: 1951-1954
L. Simard & Fils, Vitton, Lyon

Simard built scooters resembling the Lambretta, with 125 or 175cc two-stroke engines from Ydral (1), and 125cc AMC four-stroke engines.

Simard introduced their LSL model at the 1952 Salon fitted with an AMC 125cc 3-speed engine. By 1953 it had evolved and the Salon of that year saw versions with an AMC 125cc fourstroke and Ultima three-speed engines of 125cc and 200cc. Production ended in 1954.
