1928 Peugeot P105, 315cc. Registration number BF 9494 (non transferrable). Frame number 1449. Engine number 65204. The French marque was one of Europe’s Pioneer motorcycle manufacturers entering the market in 1899. They quickly established themselves as one of the premier engine suppliers and motorcycle manufacturers, with their power units being used by companies such as Norton who won the 1907 Isle of Man TT with a Peugeot powered 5HP V-twin, in the hands of Rem Fowler . In the years before and following the WWI production concentrated on a series of V- twins ranging in capacity from 330cc to 746cc. These were joined at the start of the twenties by various lightweight two stroke singles followed in 1926 by a 350 side valve single with unit construction engine. In October 1927 a new 346cc overhead valve single, the P105, was introduced at the Paris Salon, it featured a gearbox built in unit with the engine. Marketed as a sporting model, the P105 became popular for its good looks and fine running qualities. With bore x stroke of 72 x 85 mm the engine could propel the machine with a top speed of 60MPH. BF was purchased from Lewis Martin of Chabris, France in 2018 by Charles Godfrey who then set about it restoration, this included and engine and magneto rebuild. There are numerous receipts on file for parts. It should be noted that the gearbox is playing up and needs investigation. Sold with the V5C, French paperwork and many receipts for parts.
