1952 RHONSON 125cc AUBIER DUNE engine
« on: January 01, 2008, 07:39:33 PM »
I get quite a few emails from France re triporteurs. Are you guys interested enough for me to post copies onto the forum? eg this one just received.

Of course, some of you may already know Herve from Picardy? Or he may already be a member of the forum or the club? (I think I've already come across him some time ago; did he have something similar on french ebay?). Here's his email:

Mr

Your site is very well made and I found in one of your page, an article in French of 1945 presenting a prototype: here a tricycle surely inspired of this prototype Marque RHONSON manufactured in LYON in 1952 the engine is one 125 Cm3 AUBIER DUNE If you wish it, I can forward to you of other photographs I have ten tricycle or tri-car. In a friendly way Herve I live in a village of Picardy to 150 km of CALAIS
 Excuse me but I do not speak English and the translation at summer made by a software
 


Bonsoir Herve,

J'aime beaucoup votre triporteur. svp d'envoyer plus photos.

cordialement,

colin

Ah so thats where Laurie Bond got the engine on a stick idea from! I wonder if any passengers died of carbon monoxide poisoning, the exhaust is aiming right at em. An economical and simple way of building a vehicle though and a much better option then driving only one of a pair of rear wheels like the Gorden and umpteen other ill concieved conveyences. I rather like this little fenchie tuk tuk.
