A Brief History of the Marque
Established as a bicycle firm in 1923 at Rue des Verriers, Saint-Etienne, motorcycle manufacture commenced in 1927.
Several of their larger machines were marketed under the Hellessen brand, mostly 250 and 350cc models using engines from Moser, JAP, Blackburne and Zurcher.
They built lightweights using Sachs 74cc and 98cc in the 1930s, and cyclemoteurs and mopeds in the early 1950s using 48cc engines from Ducati Cucciolo and VAP.
