Built in Nancy in 1955, these used VAP 57 twin-port two-strokes, of which 100 copies are believed to have been built. Other sources indicate that Nancia built (or rebadged) motorcycles as early as 1950 and as late as 1959, and that Lavalette engines were employed. Nancia sold rebadged Automoto 125cc machines.
Lucer was the manufacturer, and the Lucer Triton (Type 592 or 593) moped was sold under the Nancia marque.
Dealers included R.Idoux cycles of Rhaon L'Etape (Vosges).
