1950`s Cymota Cycle Motor For Sale (8)1950`s Cymota Cycle Motor for Sale, Amazing Rare Cymota Auto Cycle, Only 200 approximately ever made and Probably one of only a handful to survive today ( especially running ) Basically a copy of the French-made VeloSolex 650 (45cc; 0.3hp), it had a distinctive ‘fencer’s mask’ hinged engine cover and could easily be fitted to any bicycle. Available in five different colours, it had Miller magneto ignition, an Amal 12mm carb and a 1.7-litre fuel tank. Simple to operate with no clutch, no gears and only one control, the accelerator, it was capable of speeds up to 25mph and cost just 19 Guineas including dynamo lighting equipment.

Sadly for Cymota though, when the first mopeds started to appear and the government removed the tax concessions that had made cycle-motors so cheap, most were quickly relegated to the garden shed and it is thought that no more than 200 Cymotas were sold in total.

This particular Cymota retains its original black paintwork and headlamp and is currently fitted to a gent’s Raleigh cycle with 3 -peed Sturmey Archer gears.

Unused for many years but runs well and being sold strictly ‘as seen’ with no documentation, it is nonetheless a fascinating relic from the austere world of the early 1950s, The perfect device for post-crash austerity Britain today!
