c.1959 O.L.D. Model PL60 Miniscoot
Frame no. 18674
Engine no. 18674
Car accessory manufacturer OLD's Miniscoot was the brainchild of its proprietor, Olivier Lecanu-Deschamps, who wanted to create a folding scooter that would fit inside the boot of a car. The Miniscoot was powered by a 74cc Monet Goyon engine producing 3bhp and must have been quite a handful on wet cobbles with its tiny wheels, but at least the brakes were a decent size for such a machine. Only produced in metallic bronze, it had no suspension and featured automatic (single gear) transmission and pull-cord starting. The weight was a mere 45 kilograms. The unrestored example offered here is presented in totally original condition, having covered only 122 kilometres from new. The machine has formed part of the current vendor's private collection for the past 25 years and will be offered with Carte Grise.

cadre n° 18674
Moteur n° 18674

Le Miniscoot d'OLD fut une production du carrossier et fabricant d'équipements automobiles Olivier Lecanu-Deschamps qui désirait créer un scooter pliant susceptible d'être rangé dans le coffre d'une voiture. Le Miniscoot équipé d'un moteur de 74 cm3 Monet-Goyon donnant 3 ch devait être très inconfortable sur le pavé mouillé avec ses roues minuscules, mais au moins, les freins étaient-ils d'une taille décente pour ce type de machine. Uniquement peint en bronze métallisé, il n'avait pas de suspension et sa transmission était automatique (un seul rapport), le démarrage se faisant avec un lanceur à corde. Le poids n'était que de 45 kg. Cet exemplaire non restauré, qui se présente dans un état totalement d'origine, n'a parcouru que 122 km au total. Ce scooter, conservé dans la collection du vendeur pendant 25 ans, est accompagné de sa carte grise.
