Translated (sort of )

Old MOCHET complete Puteaux style pedal-car two places convertible, starts and rolls between 60 and 70 km/h state very healthy carossery but to repaint, below car very healthy, hood torn in an angle fabric cooked (fragile) gear box 3+ step back, weight: 240kg, consumption: 3litres with the 100kms, vehicle without licence, j' have a small doubt about l' year: in its juice " Attention to be taken on the spot returns in a trailer " A light progress appears with type CM125 Luxe presented in 1949.Le term of luxury is exaggerated, because this two-seater convertible without door nor electric starter, suspension AR or spare wheel! comfort is always very Spartan, and not the least small option to record the level. As for the posted selling price of 230.000 francs c' is almost a quarter more than that announced for the 2CV CITROEN The order books are however quickly filled, mainly because d' a very short delivery period compared to the majority of the other marks, such as for example CITROEN which moreover, n' could not hold its promises with the level of the selling price of its 2CV. Impatient to have a car, much d' motorists then turned themselves on the small MOCHET which preserves its engine ZURCHER of 125 Cm3, which l' always free from driving licence and its band-brakes placed at l' outside of the drums which date from the first Pedal-car, then qu' a suspension nevertheless makes its appearance on the wheels AV and AR starting from 1950,qu ' a spare wheel finds a very small place in 1951, and that two new models supplement the range in 1952. A commercial release with a payload of 150 kg and a referred roadster: CM 125 great luxury considered as smallest carrier MOCHET of series…. I wish you good biddings with all
