Lot 349: 1961 Manurhin 74cc Concord

The Peter McManus Collection, Bonhams (1 July 2007)

French armaments firm Manufacture du Haut-Rhin began producing the German DKW ‘Hobby’ scooter in 1956, using a proportion of French-made parts. Manhurin’s MR75 (marketed as the ‘Concord’ in the UK) was constructed to a high standard and must have been one of the first motorcycles to be painted electrostatically, a process commonly known as ‘powder coating’. When DKW ceased production of the Hobby, Manurhin continued with its version, which in 1957 occupied third place in the European scooter sales chart behind Lambretta and Vespa. Apparently complete and relatively easily restored, this example is offered with Swansea V5 and V5C registration documents.
