Motorcycle: Peugeot P 105
Calculated in numbers, Peugeot was once the largest French motorcycle manufacturer and can boast an age-old two-wheeler tradition. In 1899 the company already started the production of motorized two-wheelers and produced from 1905 even two-cylinder with 350 to 1000 cc.
As a successful supplier, Peugeot established itself with built-in motors for many European manufacturers. Motorcycle manufacturer Norton relied on the French engines. In 1907 he won the Isle of Man race with the 5HP V-Twin engine from Peugeot.
In the classic tradition of all major manufacturers at the time, Peugeot first produced bicycles, then built-in motors, then motorcycles.
In the 1920s and 1930s the normal customer faced a whole range of solid mid-range models whose model names consisted of a "P" and a three-digit number.
The P 105 series started in October 1927and went to 1936 and designated a 350cc.
Marketed as a sports model, the P105 was popular above all for its design and very good ride quality.
With a weight of 130 kg, the P105 with its 348 cc and 14 hp reached a top speed of up to 100 km / h and was produced until 1936.
