French Barn Find,1954 Velor PV 100 (98cc) Villiers engine
Looking through photographs, and your list of Villiers Engine Data, I can not identify whether the engine is actually a Villiers. On the engine there is a plate, which has - BMA. 1954, Moteur Villiers 98cc, Type S3G, Engine No - 16814. The engine does not look quite like Villiers engines I have seen photographs of.

United Kingdom A Monet & Goyon 1947 has the same S3G engine.

Itom moped
I have a moped bicycle, with peddles, with a Itom motor, made by Velor. I bought it and the previous owner says that there were made only 70 units in the late 1940's early 1950's.He bought it to a man who worked in that factory in France, I presume. Can anyone help me to have more information about the Velor model and manufacturer?
Porto -Portugal

Thank you very much.
In attach I am sending photos of the bike.
