Mors Speed Scooters

Designed by Pierre Brissonnet of microcar fame, the patents were sold to SICVAM, owned by Mors Ets.

Production by Mors was between 1950 and 1955, at which time the Alcyon company took over and continued with it under their own name and those of Thomann and La Français until 1959.

An interesting lightweight 50cc scooter was produced which could be divided into two parts for easy transportation in, for instance, a light aeroplane.

The firm also built a conventional scooter named the Paris-Nice, believed to have been powered by an Ydral 115cc engine. This later appeared as the Alcyon Paris-Nice.
