Peugeot 1930 248 cc side valve model P108 frame# 93965 engine# 84091
In the middle of the twenties Peugeot marketed its first four stroke unit construction engine, a 350 cc model.
A strong selling point for many prospective customers; no messy exposed primary drive to a separate gearbox but engine and gears in one neat, clean housing. In a few years time this concept became very popular, and around 1930 there was a choice between 174 cc ( P 109), 215 cc ( P110), 248 cc ( P 108) 327 cc (P111) and 346 cc ( P105 and P 107) models. T
he logic of the system is not very transparent, is it? All machines had side valves, apart from the most sporty model, the OHV P 105.
The P 108 was a light utility bike, sturdy but with pleasing lines.
The machine has full electric lighting.
Ignition is by magneto, oiling system wet sump, 3 speed hand change gearbox.
This Peugeot is in good condition.
