Asso-Cabi Motorised Bicycles

A Brief History of the Marque

After World War II the Officine CABI Cattaneo located in Via Gallarate, Milan, built under the patent of ing. A. Orlando the auxiliary Asso 49.5 cc twostroke engine which is mounted on the rear wheel of a bicycle, with transmission by friction roller.

The small motor weighs 8.5 kg, with the cylinder inverted.

There is an unverified listing which reads: Asso 45cc 1950-1955

The firm's customers included Doniselli, and the company was apparently still in business in 2016.
