Triciclos Lifante

Manufactured by Triciclos Lifante in Barcelona and L'Hospitalet de Llobregat 1953-1966

Using 197cc Hispano Villiers engines the firm built motorcycles, tricycles and motocarros in fairly limited numbers, rarely exceeding 20 or 30 units per annum.

This was quite creditable, given that the founder, José Lifante, was wheelchair bound. The company focussed on disability vehicles, and although the motorcycle-related product vanished from the catalogue, the firm continued in the same vein. In 2005 a substantial stake in the company was purchased by the German company Meyra, long established in the field.
