Easily the most expensive miniature in the Show is the French-built Peugeot. At £55 it costs approximately the same as one or two geared and chain-driven British 350 c.c. solo machines. On the other hand, the workmanship and finish could not be surpassed, and the neat appearance of the power unit is such as will inevitably attract the elderly pedal cyclist.

No actual weight figure is available, but it is, almost certainly the second lightest self-propelled machine on the British market. Approximately one-half gallon of petrol is carried in the tank, and should suffice for nearly 100 miles of average running. Pedalling gear is retained. The wheels are quickly detachable, a feature assisted by caliper-pattern stirrup brakes. A ladies' model, with a semi-open frame, costs £56, the extra £1 being for a clutch, which may be embodied in the standard model for the same price.
