A Brief History of the Marque

France 1932-1936 (1)
Established by Pierre de Font-Réaulx, previously of DFR, and Robert Dahan.
According to Tragatsch, these were well-designed machines with two-stroke engines from 98cc to 174cc and four-stroke ohv unit-construction engines from 123cc to 498cc.

There are relationships with Dollar, DFR and Dresch.

Ces motos bénéficiaient d'une excellente technologie, pour un prix de vente bas. (Excellent value for money considering the advanced technology)

1932 : type A 350 cm3 culbutée 
1934 : type A 350 cm3 bi-tube modèle sport 
1934 : type AU 175 cm3 deux temps 
1936 : 100 cm3 Baby 4 temps è culbuteurs double échappement BMA (Twin-port OHV single)
1936 : Rafale 350 et 500 cm3. Hi-cam OHV twin-port, unit-construction. Named for the Caudron Rafale aircraft, one dear to the heart of former pilot Pierre de Font-Réaulx.

Notes 1) Tragatsch gives a start date of 1932, as does motosdax.free.fr, but t2frx3.online.fr says 1930. The history of DFR notes that Pierre de Font-Réaulx left that firm in 1932.
