Gnome & Rhône

Nice example of complete restoration by Walton Vintage.
A 1940 Gnome & Rhône AX2 800, 800cc boxer with 2-wheel drive (previously owned by Edward Fruba, icon of Polish veterans motorcycle collectors).
Production of these bikes started for the French army but the Germans took over the factory in 1940 and used the bikes for their own Wehrmacht forces.
