1947 Gillet 250 Superconfort, 250cc. Registration number not registered. Frame number not found. Engine number 250946.
Alongside FN and Saroléa, Gillet was one of Belgium's three main motorcycle manufacturers, all of which were situated near the town of Herstal. FN and Saroléa had been around for 20-or-so years before Desire Gillet and his son Leon founded Société Anonyme des Ateliers Gillet in 1919, adding 'Herstal' to the company name to differentiate it from the French René Gillet concern. The fledgling firm soon established a reputation for original design and sound engineering, which was further enhanced when Robert Sexé rode a two-stroke Gillet-Herstal around the world.
In 1946 they introduced the 250cc Superconfort twin along with several other new models, all with telescopic forks. The model ran to 1954.
This project was bought by our vendor some 20 years ago at auction and he has now decided that he never will restore it.
