A Brief History of the Marque
Manufactured by Manufacturas Aleu, SL in Esparraguera, Barcelona, 1952~1956
The firm built 125cc motorcycles using frames sourced from Monfort. These were followed by the 200cc Nito in 1954, and a three-wheeler named Bambi also of 200cc. There was also a motocarro named the Cachorro, a cargo tricycle with a payload of 250kg, and a 4-wheeled microcar of which few were produced.
The factory made its own two-stroke engines of 198 and 247cc.
Production halted in 1956 and the company was acquired by Monfort, who continued to produce the motorcycles but not the other machines.

First thing, sorry for my no very good English.
If it's possible I would like to know something about ALEU motorcycles made in 50's in Spain.
The question is:
What kind of engine had the first Aleu?. I have three possible answers 49cc, 100cc or 125cc, but I don't know it exactly.
Thank you very much and regards from Spain.
