Sarolea Motorcycles

Mototraction Triporteurs

Manufactured by Sarolea from the early 1930s, these were triporteurs with side-valve 350cc and 500cc engines. Three versions were built with load capacity of 300 to 500kg, all in tadpole configuration. The largest was the Type D, which had an automotive style steering wheel.

These were built at the request of a Sarolea representative in Japan where there was considerable demand for such rickshaws. They were widely exported.

Dutch agencies were TH. Vlemmings in Eindhoven and G. Joh. Bruinsma in Amsterdam
