The Biscuter was manufactured in Spain, between 1953 and 1960. Simple and cheap, it sold more than 10,000 units.
Although it had an aluminium body, rack & pinion steering and four wheels, it was very minimalist in design. There were no doors or windows or reverse gear, although these amenities became available from 1957.
It was powered by a single cylinder, 197cc two stroke 9hp engine, with drive to the right front wheel only. It was capable of about 70 km/hr
The BIscuter was a common sight on Spanish roads in the 50’s. It became part of local culture and was known as the Zapatilla, after a small shoe or clog worn by peasants. “Ugly as a Biscuter” was a popular joke of the time.
