Due to this country is also noted to have several manufacturers that have made scooters that are no less beauty and reliable than other scooters that have been made by manufacturers in other parts of the world.

For those reasons, then we initiated to explore on the cyberspace. And then we found several scooters figure made by Spanish companies from the articles compiled based on pictures by Scooterhood on Gramho, Facebook, etc. Then we add some related information from other sites. Here're two Spaniard companies who ever made a beautiful and reliable scooter:

1. Cimera (Boli)
In the first place is the Cimera scooter, an eccentric and unique scooter from Valencia, Spain, made by a manufacturer founded by Don José Bolinches Bacete, an industrial from Valencia Spain.

It is known, how's he can founded the company to produce several microcars to scooters, it thanks to his initial bussines to export fruits, especially oranges, from Valencia to Belgium. Even during the beginning of the Civil War in Spain, he and his wife (Yvonne Pieters Janssen) and their children (Juan and José) moved to Brussels, Belgium. Not only that, his company was also moved there.

In the course of his business it turned out that Don José Bolinches encountered many obstacles in Spain so that the bureaucrats at that time did not give any permission to his company to make four-wheeled vehicles. Over the time, in the 1950s he succeeded in making several three-wheeled microcars and scooters.

The figure of the Cimera scooter made between 1952 - 1955 can be said to be an eccentric scooter because it has an unusual front shield shape that was not possessed by other scooters at that time. Then the Cimera scooter uses a 250cc 4-stroke engine combined with a 2 speed automatic transmission system for 2 riding conditions, normal and special such as during storms and heavy rains.

Besides producing two models of the Cimera scooter, it was also noted that the Don José Bolinches company had also built a scooter with the Boli brand in 1951. This scooter turned out to have a very special meaning. Because the scooter that was born in the dominant color of chrome with dark blue and gray paint accents was built special for his beloved wife. Ooh.. so sweet! But unfortunately manufacture ceased in 1955.

2. Montesa Fura (Ferret)
Then there is also a scooter made by a company from Barcelona, Catalonia called Montesa. Although only 2 units were made as prototypes in 1958. The idea behind making this scooter came from Pedro Permanyer, the company co-founders (with Francisco Bultó). At first he asked Bultó to design a basic scooter, but then instructed another company's engineer, Leoplodo Milá to complete it.
