Griffon 1906 2 3/4 HP ca. 350cc.
Griffon is one of the oldest French makes; motorcycles were built as early as 1902. At first Z.L. (Zédel) power sources were used, next to engines from Moser and Laurin & Klément.
This particular Griffon is equipped with a sidevalve Zédel engine that was specifically constructed for the Griffon Company.
The magneto is placed above the engine in a compartment in the petrol tank, to protect this delicate device from bad weather conditions.
The machine is unrestored and almost complete. Some replica parts are included.
This veteran Griffon promises to become an interesting addition to every collection !
