Atelier South Garage built a bike in the legendary Citroën 2CVDecember 14, 2019
On the part of the 70th anniversary of the presentation of the legendary French kid Citroën 2CV, the Italian motorcycle manufacturer South Garage Moto Co created a special bike. The British motorcycle Triumph Bonneville was taken as the basis for the project.
The iconic French small car Citroën 2CV, which was produced between 1949 and 1990, turned 70 this year. The French brand decided how to celebrate this event – at the Italian motorcycle manufacturer South Garage Moto Co. a special motorcycle was ordered. English Triumph Bonneville was chosen as the base for the anniversary project. In the end, France and England were always very close to each other.
South Garage even shot a short series of videos about the process of creating an anniversary motorcycle. Of course, it’s a little pity that they are all Italian, but if you want to know what the creators of this masterpiece are talking about, you’ll have to turn on subtitles with automatic translation.
At first, the South Garage Moto engineering team decided to carefully study the legendary Citroën 2CV to get enough inspiration. Then it was decided to finally determine the color scheme of the future motorcycle. Citroën double chevron logos are pretty well located throughout the bike.
We should also mention the motorcycle headlight – it is located on the right leg of the plug – exactly the same as on the original 2CV (both in location and color). Previously, 2CVs were produced with only one headlight, which is quite common on motorcycles, but this was rare for cars.
