Alta was a little known motorcycle company from Greece. Although Alta's primary production was of light and heavy duty 3-wheel trucks and cars, they also produced several models of motorcycles with 50cc Sachs engines.
Founded in Athens Greece in 1962, Alta Automotive only produced for a period of 16 years before shutting their doors in 1978.
Although not much information is available on Alta Vehicles Corporation, one thing stands firmly, most of the Alta vehicles are still in use today, as three wheeled vehicles were and still are very popular throughout Greece.
Even less is known about Alta's Motorcycle division, as they were only produced for 10 of Alta's 16 year history, with a production number in the low hundreds.
There are very few samples of the Alta Motorcycle left today.
