Monet-Goyon tricycle c. 1920

Monet-Goyon History

In 1916 Joseph Monet (engineer) and Adrien GOYON (from a wealthy family in Mâcon) began a venture to manufacture pedal-powered vehicles for the disabled veterans of the ongoing war.

Monet & Goyon was formed on April 2, 1917, with their first product named the Vélocimane. This was soon followed by their first engine, the "Autowheel" or "Auto-roue", manufactured under licence from the English firm Wall. The firm's aim was to supply mobility to those in need at an affordable price. The engine was used to power their Automouche tricycles, and the Vélauto.

In 1922, Monet & Goyon began building Villiers engines under license and this engine was fitted to all existing models. Two years later their first sports machine was presented, the 175cc "ZS". This was followed by the 1925 "Brooklands TT". The bright red machine proceeded to sweep all before it in competition winning numerous laurels in France and taking 20 world records.
