Styl’son 1930 “ RCE” 250cc s.v. JAP frame # 1419 engine # B/W/ 97129/B*
Styl’son motorcycles were manufactured in Le Chambon – Feugerolles in the Loire region in France between 1926 and 1939.
The first model was a 250 cc machine with OHV Moser engine. This was followed by a 250 cc side valve model with JAP engine.
Most parts of the motorcycles were bought-in, both from regional suppliers (wheels, hubs, mudguards, handlebars, etc.) and from big manufacturers (engines and gearboxes ).
Engines came from Moser, JAP, Blackburne and Staub. This last make was a JAP produced under licence.
The company got into financial problems several times but managed to struggle on till 1939.
Interesting information on the make can be found at http://www.stylson.net/ .
The 1930 range varied from the 175 cc two stroke “ AB” till the 750 cc JAP V-twin “RV”.
The “RCE” is equipped with Burman 3 speed gearbox, AMAC carburettor , MEA magneto and Pilgrim mechanical oil pump.
The machine has full electric lighting.
A very characteristic post-vintage machine with many quality details and a good runner too!
