It all started with an ad placed by an industrial antiques dealer in the north of France announcing that during his search for unique pieces he had come across an old Renault AHS3. But this wasn’t just any old rusty Renault truck. This one was used as a Motul delivery truck by a motorcycle dealer. We were pretty soon alerted to this discovery, and we had no choice but to acquire this unique piece of our own history.
The Renault AHS3 was manufactured in 1945 and could have seen military action (it was probably painted white at the time), before being bought by a Motorcycle specialist in Normandy. After it had served its purpose, it spent 30 years shut away at a vehicle recycling center until it was discovered.
