Aleu Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured by Manufacturas Aleu, SL in Esparraguera, Barcelona, 1952~1956

The firm built 125cc motorcycles using frames sourced from Monfort. These were followed by the 200cc Nito in 1954, and a three-wheeler named Bambi also of 200cc. There was also a motocarro named the Cachorro, a cargo tricycle with a payload of 250kg, and a 4-wheeled microcar of which few were produced.

The factory made its own two-stroke engines of 198 and 247cc.

Production halted in 1956 and the company was acquired by Monfort, who continued to produce the motorcycles but not the other machines.

Hello friends:

First thing, sorry for my no very good English.
If it's possible I would like to know something about ALEU motorcycles made in 50's in Spain.
The question is:
What kind of engine had the first Aleu?. I have three possible answers 49cc, 100cc or 125cc, but I don't know it exactly.
Thank you very much and regards from Spain.
