A Brief History of the Marque
58-64 rue de Dunkerque à Armentières (Nord)
Louis was a mechanical engineer who built industrial trolleys and specialised in tyre retreading, while his wife ran a motorcycle shop selling a number of different marques including AGF and Motobecane, as well as sidecars.
In 1949 they began building scooters, three-wheelers and mopeds powered exclusively by Ydral engines of 123 and 174cc, with many other components being constructed in-house. The carrier boxes for the triporteurs were built by a local carpenter. The 175 motorcycles did quite well in local competition.
By 1950 sales were going well, with engines being ordered in batches of 5 and 10 at a time.
1953 saw the presentation of a new type of three wheeler which owed some of its concepts to Motobecane and Lambretta. It appears that there was a marriage breakup in 1954 which resulted in a halt to production, and the same year the motorcycle store closed.
