This automobile was manufactured by the Bourbeau et Devaux Co. of Paris from 1910 to 1925. This low and light car carried its two passengers in tandem. The passenger was seated at front, while in the rear was the person doing the steering. Single-cylinder or V-twin engines were used. Before World War I, Bédélia cyclecars sold very well, even in Britain.
Manufacturing rights were obtained by Mathieux in 1920. Body design was modified - passengers were seated side by side. When the cyclecar boom was over the company collapsed in 1925.
