Effectively providing a bicycle with motorised assistance, autocycles had appeared before the war and continued to grow in numbers post-war. Many manufacturers included one in their range, most being powered by Villiers engines. Raynal were somewhat of an exception to the rule, as their post-war output between 1946 and 1950 when production ceased, was exclusively autocycles, and latterly of this model, the De Luxe, which featured a clutch and direct lighting. JYN 317 was purchased by the deceased owner at an indeterminate date. It has had no use during the present ownership, and has been barn stored. In need of restoration, it is sold strictly as viewed. There are no documents with this lot.
