1953 Ducati Cucciolo Cointot Freres Model CM504
Cointot Freres was one of a variety of French companies selling upmarket mopeds powered by imported Ducati Cucciolo engines. In this era, the Velosolex dominated the bottom end of the market, while two-speed mopeds such as this were as expensive as a small motorcycle …but very chic.
Everything changed when the NSU Quickly was introduced, as it was so much more efficient.
I sold this rare machine in 2012.
