History of the Ultima marque
Etablissements Eugène Billion
24 & 24bis rue du Commandant Faurax

This venerable French company built many different machines with Aubier-Dunne, JAP and Zurcher engines, mostly 250 and 350 singles and a 500cc sidevalve V-Twin. Postwar they built smaller twostrokes.

The Cazenave page says that Ultima engines were employed in their motorcycles.
