Echave, Arizmendo y Cía, S.A. built lightweight motorcycles (mopeds) with 75cc engines from 1954 to 1962.

The firm operated from the factory of the former Fénix de Eibar arms company, where they too produced small arms.

Manufactured by Edeta Industrias Mecanicas, Barcelona, 1955-1961
Known as Semior from c.1951 to 1954 (SErra, MIró and ORtolà, who also built sidecars and three wheelers), the first Edeta models were quite similar and used the same Gnome & Rhône 175cc engine (built under licence by Altosen of Barcelona) before changing to Hispano Villiers.
