Monark Swedish, 1913-1926 sold as "Esse" then changed to the Monark name 1927-1975
The 1930 Monark M10 used a Blackburne engine, and the Monark M560 Blue arrow used a JLO. Several mopeds from the 1970s used Franco Morini engines.
Early post-war lightweights used Villiers engines, and at least one (1948 M70) apparently used Puch. Several from this era used the JB engine, and a few used Husqvarna. The M112 of 1957-58 used an Ardie BD201, and CZ engines were fitted to 1950-52 M200 models. Sachs engines were fitted to racing models of the early 1970s (50cc RoadRacing) and to moped-like stepthroughs of the 1980s.

Monark models include:

1930 M10
1957-58 M112 (Ardie BD201)
1950-52 M200 (CZ)
1959 Monark 500 Cross-Replica
1960s Monark Monza ILO TS50 (possibly a rebadged Goricke Supersport)
 

Other related Swedish marques include Albin-Monark, Crescent, Erlan, Maraton, Vimpel, Centrum, Wano, Stanley and MCB.
