Such an unique suspension was also installed on the Type H 350 (1929). This machine was marketed as a touring bike, which could provide an incredible level of comfort for a rider and a passenger. And with a sidecar it could turn out to an ideal touring vehicle for the whole family.
Motorcycle was equipped with a 350 cc one-cylinder engine (7 h.p.). The only engine’s cylinder was made of high-quality cast-iron with a removable cylinder head. The cast-iron piston was connected with the rod, which had double roller bearings. Plain bearings were used in both axes.
Since 1930, Type H 350 along with every motorcycle of the René Gillet family, had a complex front fork, hand shifted gearbox and a simple dashboard with an ammeter and a couple of switches.
