Notes on some of the rarer Spanish marques
This page lists brands for which we currently have only an historical precis. For a more complete listing visit the Spanish Index.
Manufactured by MOVESA (Motores y Vehículos S.A.) based in Vitoria, 1952 to 1983
A prototype was displayed at the 1952 Barcelona Fair, and the first production machine was the much improved 125cc 55 TC, based on a Peugeot.
In 1957 the 57 TC appeared in several versions - the TT, TTC and TTL.
By then the machines were commercially successful, with 22,000 produced.
1959 saw the introduction of a slightly more powerful machine, the 150 TB. However, Spain was suffering from a financial crisis during the 1960s and sales plumetted. Movesa continued with the manufacture of mopeds until 1983, when all motorcycle production ceased.
Jenaro Piqueres of Alberique modified Montesa machines which he rode in regional races from 1952 to 1955.
Built in Barcelona 1951-1955
These were two-stroke engines of 125cc supplied to Taber, Kapi, Lifante and others, but were not superior to the Hispano Villiers.
Manufactured in Barcelona 1954-1955, these motorcycles were fitted with Gnome & Rhône 125cc two-stroke engines. The firm is understood to have also built three-wheelers.
In 1956 the name of the marque changed to Rekord.
N.B. 1. Another source gives dates of 1952-54.
