Cyclauto

Introduced in France in 1919 the Cyclauto was built by the Compagnie Francaise du Cyclauto. Power came from a 487cc water cooled 2-stroke side by side vertical cylinder Sicam engine that was mounted at the front of the vehicle and drove the rear two wheels by a chain to an epicyclic gear on the counter shaft and then two belts running over  pulleys to provide the final drive.  Later models were powered by 900cc Ruby 4-cyclinder engines.  The body of the vehicle was a tubular steel frame used for bicycles with steel panels attached to it. It also had a large collapsable hood.  Production ceased in 1923.
