Labitte Engines

1899

H. Labitte 26 rue de Ménilmontant, Paris

There are two Labitte firms: Hyppolite, and Eugène, both specialists in light engines.

One of these firms acquired Landru in 1900.

Eugène Labitte had sold his plans and patents to Dalifol. (Bourdache p44)

It is believed a Labitte engine was used in one of the first Werner motorcycles.

Bourdache Labitte (E.) pp 44, 84, 86, 99, 109, 141, 142.
