Lot Details
c.1930 San Sou Pap 350 Culbuté Coursifiée'
Originating in Paris after the Great War, San-Sou-Pap, as its name implies, produced machines with valve-less, two-stroke engines for the growing French market for frugal motor transport. After a number of years, San-Sou-Pap merged with the Rovin concern and their range of machines expanded with four-stroke engines supplied from the number of proprietary makers in business at the time.

This example of the San-Sou-Pap, originally supplied by Cycles H. Benoit of Conqueril, Loire, is presented in competition machine fashion with stiffened frame and sweeping 'moustache' handlebars. The gearbox is a Staub but the overhead-valve engine with speedway-style pipes and supplementary pump had not been positively identified at the time of cataloguing. An excellent candidate for les Coupes Moto Légende.

Footnotes

  • San-Sou-Pap 350 Culbutée « Coursifiée » c.1930

    Fondée à Paris après la Grande Guerre, la marque San-Sou-Pap produisit, comme son nom l'indique, des moteur deux temps (sans soupapes) destiné au marché alors en plein développement des moyens de transport économiques. San-Sou-Pap fusionna ensuite avec la marque Rovin et leur gamme s'étendit aux moteurs à quatre temps fournis par des fabricants spécialisés.

    Cet exemplaire de San-Sou-Pap, livré à l'origine par Cycles H. Benoit de Conqueril dans la Loire, se présente en version course avec un cadre renforcé et un guidon relevé « en moustache ». La boîte est une Staub, mais le moteur à culbuteurs avec sorties d'échappement façon machine de piste et pompe supplémentaire n'a pas été précisément identifié au moment de la rédaction du catalogue. C'est néanmoins une excellente candidate pour les Coupes Moto Légende.
