Vigneron Motocyclettes

Address: 70 bld Sébastopol in Paris

Sold C.F.C. and L'Universel engines and motocyclettes, and also bicycles and sewing machines

Ets Vigneron, who were main agents for L'Universel engine kits, installed them in bicycles sent to them for an extra 15 F which was added to the 360 F price of the 1 1/2hp engine assembly. The kit included fuel tank, ignition system and final drive components.

Vigneron also sold a formidable 4hp 90 ° V-twin (680 F). In the 3hp version, it was proposed in an unusual way to "form a fixed engine that can operate sewing machines of all systems".
