A Brief History of the Marque
Made in Austria 1932-1952
Josef Illichman founded his machinery firm in 1933 in Vienna 16, Hasnerstraße.
He raced 250cc four-stroke V-twin machines of his own design between 1933 and 1935. Subsequent to the war he built rather neat Puch and ILO-engined machines, as well as manufacturing quality front and rear suspension components.
