Poinard Motorcycles

Built by M. Raynal in Fretin (Nord) from 1951 to 1956, the range included 125 and 175cc fourstroke scooters along with 125cc to 250cc motorcycles with engines from AMC, Ydral and Aubier et Dunne. M. Raynal was also associated with BCR motorcycles.

There is also Pierre Poinard of 54 rue E. Dolet, Cachan (Seine), builder of sidecars, three-wheel 125cc utility vehicles and, in 1952, a three-wheel 125cc microcar. Poinard was also associated with BCR, so it seems likely that they are one and the same.
