History
Robert van Driel: "Le Lewis parts were developed by constructeur Louis Villemus from the Rhône-Alpes area, the marque being a pun on his first name. These components were around from the mid 1930s to the late 1940s. Villemus was an oldtimer competing with youngsters like Herse and Singer in the Concourses of the 1940s. One of his machines won the Grand Prix Duralumin category "serie" in 1946. "Lewis" then joined company with the mighty Etienne Bernadet, who inspired a generation of builders through the Reyhand bikes he co-developed and rode to victory in 3 consecutive Grand Prix in the 1930s. Although he's largely forgotten, Villemus seems to have had some influence."
