Footnotes

  • Founded in Acacias, Geneva in 1901, Motosacoche took its name from Henri and Armand Dufaux's self-contained cyclemotor power unit, literally 'une moto sa coche' or 'engine in a bag'. Marketed as 'MAG', the firm's well made proprietary engines were widely used throughout Continental Europe, the French and Italian markets being served by subsidiary factories in Lyon and Milan respectively. Motosacoche's characteristic inlet-over-exhaust engines were replaced by (mainly) sidevalve types towards the end of the 1920s, while for sports and competition use the firm offered a range of overhead-valve and overhead-camshaft units. This 496cc Motosacoche has the marque's characteristic inlet-over-exhaust power unit. The machine has been restored over the last five years and is described by the vendor as in excellent condition in all respects. Offered with Swiss Carte Grise (Veteran).

    VAT will be payable on the Hammer Price and Buyer's Premium at the standard rate if the car remains in Switzerland.

    Motosacoche 496 cm3 1930
    Cadre n° 17195

    Fondé aux Acacias, à Genève en 1901, Motosacoche devait son nom au moteur de cycle indépendant de Henri et Armand Dufaux, littéralement « une moto en sacoche » ou « moteur dans un sac ». Commercialisé sous le nom de MAG, les moteurs bien conçus de la marque étaient largement utilisés dans toute l'Europe continentale, les marché français et italiens étant approvisionnés par des filiales respectivement à Lyon et Milan. Les caractéristiques des moteurs Motosacoche à admission au-dessus de l'échappement furent remplacés (essentiellement) par des moteurs à soupapes latérales vers la fin des années 1920, tandis que pour le sport et la compétition la marque proposait une gamme de moteurs à soupapes en tête et à arbre à cames en tête. Cette Motosacoche 496 cm3 est équipée du caractéristique moteur de la marque à admission au-dessus de l'échappement. La machine a été restaurée dans les cinq dernières années et est décrite par le vendeur comme en excellent état sous tous ses aspects. Vendue avec sa carte grise suisse (vétéran).

    La TVA sera due sue le prix d'adjudication et la prime acheteur au taux courant si le véhicule reste en Suisse.
