Saroléa 1929 “24 T” 494cc side valve frame & engine # 100633
After having used Sturmey-Archer gearboxes for many years Saroléa starts to produce its own in 1927 and early in 1929 the factory is extended to some 6000 m2. Nearly all components of the bikes are made in-house now and the production capacity grows to 50 machines per day. Later in 1929 a brand new state-of–the-art production facility is commissioned which brings the production capacity to 75 machines per day. Saroléa is all ready for the new decade! The 1929 range consists of 5 models in capacities of 349 and 494 cc.
