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.

    En 1916, Joseph Monet et Adrien Goyon commencèrent à fabriquer des tricycles non motorisés pour les invalides de guerre, activité qui dura jusqu'en 1939. La firme située à Mâcon construisit ses premiers deux-roues à moteur vers 1919 en obtenant les droits de fabrication du Wall Autowheel, une roue à moteur fixée sur une bicyclette. En 1922, Monet-Goyon obtint la licence de fabrication du moteur deux temps Villiers 269 cm3 devenant ainsi l'un des principaux clients de Villiers en Europe continentale. Des modèles à moteur quatre temps MAG suisses fabriqués sous licence s'ajoutèrent à la gamme en 1925. Cette Monet-Goyon à moteur MAG modifiée pour la course est proposée avec sa carte grise française de collection..
