Manufactured 1955-1968

The small company produced 49cc mopeds using two-stroke engines from Rex, Sachs and possibly MAV, and also light motorcycles with FB Minarelli engines.

In the 1960s they built scooters with using both tubular and pressed-metal chassis.

According to bicycle site, the company was "founded in 1896 in Torino by Emmo Ghelfi and still run by him in 1946. The brand was later acquired by Emilio Bozzi and co-produced in Milan with his Legnano and Woolsit brands."
