In 1926, Peugeot reorganized its two-wheeled operations to be autonomous from its automobile business, creating La Nouvelle Société des Cycles Peugeot, grouping together all motorcycle and bicycle production in one entity. At the start of the 1930s, Peugeot’s range included several well-received models.

The modest 350 cc P 107, popularized by the travels of the motorcyclist reporter Robert Sexé, featured the largest displacement single-cylinder engine that Peugeot produced in 1931, and the last large-displacement French motorcycle built before WWII. This P 107 S, advertised as “Modèle Luxe,” cost 4,250 French francs when new and was one of Peugeot’s most popular models of the period. A light and agile machine, the P 107 proved itself to be sporty and reliable and equally well suited for civilian and military use. Equipped with luxurious Marchal electric lights, the P 107 S was a handsome machine ideal for city use and country touring. In military specification, the Peugeot P 107s were sometimes used during the war to parachute behind enemy lines.

This restored civilian model painted in military colors once formed part of a military display at the Dean Kruse Foundation in Indiana. Today, it is believed to be the only such example in the US. The Mullin Collection purchased this motorcycle at auction in 2012.
