*Characterful French microcar
*Engine reported to be good
*Ripe for improvement

When it comes to frugal motoring post-war French microcars are the most adept at wringing every kilometer out of a litre of fuel. The Cicostar was built in Limoges, and was powered by a Motobecane 50cc engine. Our vendor says the bodywork and paint are in average order and the interior presents in the same, average order. The engine is reported to be good for starting, running and presentation and the running gear is said to be good. There is little history with this lot.
