Produced as Helvetia motorcycles in Switzerland prior to making the Universal brand of bikes the machines were built with JAP, Python, Anzani and Ilo engines, among others.

They also used their own side valve engines of 676cc and 990cc in motorcycles made for the Swiss army. After WWII they produced a 250cc single cylinder machine and a BMW-like flat twin of 578cc with shaft drive like the one we present here.

As part of a European collection this rare motorcycle has been laid up for some time and remains in good general order although largely in original condition.
