Cimera
José Bolinches of Valencia began producing scooters in 1948 powered by an OHV 250cc engine. The gearbox was of dual range type to better cope with steep inclines and rough roads. They were of decidedly unusual appearance and were presented at the 1953 Valencia Trade Fair in two versions, Touring and Rural, the latter having power take-off for pumps and the like and a tow hitch.
The influx of cheaper Italian scooters affected sales.
Cimera produced a number of three-wheel microcars with a single wheel at the rear. These were also marketed under the Boli marque. Manufacture ceased in 1955.

Cremsa

Manufactured by Construcciones Radio-Electro Mecánicas, S.A. in Barcelona between 1958 and 1966.

The firm built motorcycles, motocarros and tricycles. The first three-wheelers were powered by a fan-cooled Hispano-Villiers 6M engine and had utility tray behind the driver seat. It was named the Pato (Duck), and later the same year another machine with a carrier box at the front was built, also named Pato.

The first motorcycle was developed in 1958 and entered production in 1960. The Rally was offered with either a 197cc Hispano Villiers engine or and 250cc twin.

Cremsa entered the moped market in 1965 with 50cc Hispano-Villiers engines and 2 or 3 speed gearboxes.
