Benoît Faure Motorcycles

A well-known cyclist active in the 20s and 30s, Faure established a factory at 45 Rue Paillons in Saint-Etienne and produced mopeds and velomoteurs from 1951 to 1956. Despite the firm's short lifespan it produced around a dozen different models powered by engines from Comet, Myster, Mistral, Himo, Villiers and Le Poulain of up to 100cc.

A fire at the factory caused considerable damage, and possibly as a result some of the production then took place at the Bonnefond establishment.

Benoît Faure died in 1980.
