Lurquin-Coudert ca 1907 2HP ca. 250 cc AIV engine#2868
Founded in 1899, Lurquin-Coudert was one of the true pioneers of the French motorcycle industry.
The make was at the forefront of racing events on bicycle tracks for a number of years, Mr. Coudert being one of the most well-known riders. In 1906 a V-twin with coil spring rear suspension was offered.
From that year on the L.-C. engines were also used in other makes such as Olympia and Gloria.
Production ended around 1914.
The model we offer is one of the light models in the range, a 2HP of ca. 250 cc.
It is equipped with the optional magneto ignition that was available for an extra 125 Francs; the front suspension wasn’t included either, that cost another 25 Francs.
Price of standard machine was 660 Francs.
Fuel consumption is about 3 litres per 100 kilometres and the machine weighs some 45 kilos.
This is a charming veteran in good original condition.
