Peugeot 1919 Models

Peugeot 6 h.p. 1919

The 6 h.p. Peugeot, an exhibit conforming in general appearance to British design. A three-speed gear is fitted, and chain-cum-belt transmission.


Two specimens of Peugeot motor cycles are shown, viz., a 3 1/2 h.p. twin (56 x 70 mm.) and a 6 h.p. twin (70x95 mm.).

Both machines are similar in layout, being fitted with primary chain drive, three-speed countershaft gear box, and final belt transmission. The valves are placed side by side and protected by a metal shield. Sidecar lugs are built integral with the frame of the 6 h.p. model, and the frame is somewhat unusual in that, though it is constructed on standard lines with a dropped top tube, the front is considerably higher than the rear. Both brakes act on the belt rim, and 650x65 mm. tyres are fitted. Armoured tool bags, adjustable foot rests, and a spring fork having single tubes and an enclosed spring are items of interest.
