Brun-Latrige Motorcycles

Founded in 1836, the firm built weapons and bicycles at 7 Cours Fauriel, Saint-Etienne. Motorcycles first appeared in their 1909 catalogue advertised as a "Moto-Bicyclette KD" of 1¾ h.p. These were Keller Dorian engines.

Brun-Latrige continued to make bicycles, pistols and rifles until at least 1937, but the motorcycle venture was short-lived.
