Previously known as 'Prester-Jonghi', Jonghi dislayed a 125cc four-stroke single at the Paris Salon in 1948 but the bulk of the company's post-war production was of two-stroke models such as the H54T offered here (the 'Prester' name had been dropped after WW2). Introduced in 1954, the H54T was a twin-port single derived from Jonghi's first post-war 250, the Model H of 1951, and was broadly similar apart from its telescopic front fork, which replaced the H's trailing-link type. A maximum power output of 9bhp and a top speed of around 60mph were claimed. Its sales hit by a widespread switch to small, cheap cars such as the Citroën 2CV, Motos Jonghi ceased production in 1957. The machine is offered with French Carte Grise de collection and a copy of the Certificat de Cession d'un Vehicle dated November 2000.
