Frame No: 33719

The Manet S100 Scooter Type 01-A, with a 100cc engine, was introduced in 1961 with the Frame No: 33719. This model marked a significant evolution from its predecessor, the Manet 90 (1958), and was produced at the Považské strojárne factory in Czechoslovakia.

Compared to the Manet 90, the Manet S100 featured a complete redesign. It was the first scooter manufactured in this factory. Notably, the scooter was well-equipped with features such as a full fairing, windshield, electric starter, flashing system, and a two-person seat. The single-cylinder two-stroke engine, with a displacement of 100 cm³, produced an output of 3.7 kW (5 HP). The scooter had a top speed of 70 km/h and was equipped with a 4-speed gearbox.

Distinguishing itself from other scooters of its time, such as the Čezeta, the Manet had an open tubular frame with a U-profile tubular frame to support the rear hood. The front wheel featured a spring-loaded tuning fork with a central spring element, offering a 120 mm stroke. Meanwhile, the rear wheel was connected to a long swing arm (with a 90 mm stroke) and two non-guided coil springs, along with separate telescopic dampers.

Production of these scooters continued until 1967, and they were included in the import program of the German Democratic Republic (GDR). The Manet S100 showcased advancements in design and technology, contributing to the scooter market during that period.
