More recently, the Nottingham company offered a range of mopeds plus a motor scooter in the late 1950s/1960s. The scooter was the Roma, built by Bianchi in Milan, Italy, in whose range it featured as the Orsetto (Bear Cub). The Roma's 78cc two-stroke engine was mounted horizontally beneath the tubular spine frame and drove the rear wheel by means of an enclosed chain.

Survivors are few.
