Description

Founded in Geneva in 1899, Motosacoche was once the biggest Swiss motorcycle manufacturer, known also for its MAG (Motosacoche Acacias Genève) proprietary-engines used by other European motorcycle manufacturers. The company’s first products were auxiliary bicycle engines that came in a subframe and could be bolted into a conventional bicycle.

The firm progressed, and with factories in France and Switzerland and Italy, MAG supplied engines to a number of well-established British and continental motorcycle makers. Motosaccoche also started manufacturing machines in its own name, and when the Bol d’Or 24-hour race was first held on the outskirts of Paris in 1922, the winning rider (just the one back then…) covered more than 750 miles on a 500cc Motosacoche. In 1928, Motosaccoche rider Wal Handley won the 350cc and 500cc European Championship titles.

Offered with French papers, this 1928 350cc Motosacoche is described by the vendor as being in good general condition. It was restored some years ago and runs well, and it’s a fine example of an historic Swiss motorcycle marque.
