Barrellier Three-wheelers

Three-wheeler built in 1919 using a horizontally-opposed two-stroke engine fitted below the armchair-like seat.


The Barrellier, a three-wheeler fitted with a flat twin two-stroke engine.


A quaint little three-wheeler with a single small front wheel is displayed on this stand. The tout ensemble is reminiscent of an invalid chair (for which type of vehicle the manufacturers are famous). Both single and two-seaters are made, and both are engined by horizontally-opposed two-stroke air-cooled engines combined with two-speed gears and fully enclosed magnetos. The final drive is by shaft and worm gear to a neat live rear axle.
