Lot 420: Peugeot 176 GS Bol D'Or

Grand Palais Sale, Bonhams (7 February 2013)

After WW2, Cycles Peugeot concentrated on offering a range of utilitarian two-strokes to a motorcycle-buying public hungry for basic transportation. The passion for racing remained though, and in 1951 the factory made a surreptitious entry in the Bol d'Or via the Swiss importer. Its promising showing prompted an official entry of five machines the following year, these being tuned developments of the 175cc '176 TC4' roadster. In the race, four of the five Peugeots finished, André Bouin's winning its class and coming home 5th overall. Capitalising on this success, Peugeot introduced a production version for 1953, the '176 GS Bol D'Or', which although de-tuned to 10bhbp was still good for 110km/h (68mph). This example is offered with French Carte Grise normale
