1934 - 1955
Plinio Galbusera and engineer Adolf Marama Toyo initially built 173 units with a 498 cc Python (Rudge) or Sturmey-Archer engines into their frames, but in 1938 they made two sensational machines. One was a 249.2 cc four-two with compressor and another with a 498.4 cc eight cylinder (V8). In essence, this last engine built from two coupled four blocks. This had a compressor.
Yet it was not Galbusera's intention to develop much power. He wanted to drive reliable machines and the top speed of 150 km/h was very acceptable. The limited financial capabilities of Galbusera may also have caused them to stop development.
1945 the engines were originally a 125cc - and a 175cc with two-Sachs-blocks, which later replaced the Villiers engines. 1955 Galbusera began to have financial problems and production was terminated.
