In 1916 Joseph Monet and Adrien Goyon commenced the manufacture of un-powered tricycles for disabled servicemen injured in The Great War, an activity they would maintain until 1939. The Macon-based company built its first powered two-wheeler around 1919 when it obtained rights to the Wall Autowheel, a self-contained, motorised wheel that attached to a bicycle. In 1922 Monet-Goyon obtained the licence for the manufacture of a 269cc Villiers two-stroke engine and from then onwards the French firm would be one of Villiers' best customers in Continental Europe. Four-stroke models powered by Swiss MAG engines, built under license, were added to the range in 1925. This MAG-engined Monet-Goyon has been modified for racing. The machine is offered with French Carte Grise de collection.
- La machine est vendue avec son certificat d'immatriculation, mais pas la carte grise comme indiquée au catalogue.
