1923 Salmson Sport
Our friend Manuel Parra sent in these photos of his latest project, a little 1923 Salmson Sport made in Paris. He’s been on OL before, click for more. His shop Cometa Restauracions in Madrid, Spain works on early machines, and turns out a surprising number each year.
The sexy boat-tail Salmson is shown racing in the 1920s sans windscreen, and on the streets in the 1950s, and now after a light restoration. All that Manuel and his team did was to hand paint the mudguards, plus a cleaning of the original interior and polishing of the old paint. The little tires and overall light weight must make things exciting with the 4 cylinder motor.
If you travel to Madrid, be sure to stop into the shop to say hello and see the latest projects.
