|Disassembling: the cycle part|
|Recommendations of the novice:|
This P108 model enormously evolved between 1928, date of its first presentation to the catalogue of June 1, 1928 (like the showing in October of the same year), and 1939, year of end of manufacture of the model.
A very good study was carried out by "the review of the motocyclettist" N° 92. It's a very valuable guide for thoses which wishes to renovate its P108 such as it really was.
This model with transverse silencer was manufactured only a few months.
The same model was sold under the marks Automoto model A15 and Aiglon model 80.
