This is the classic Micron 2.8cc. Of it, Bert notes: Like all Microns it is beautifully made and was built in 1946 or 47. All of the French engines I have show excellent workmanship and good design in my opinion. It is a puzzle to me why we all know so little about them and very few were ever exported for some reason. I am sure there is some sort of Gallic reason for all of this, but I don't know what it might be.
