This looks like a distinctly mid-range bike from the 1970s with nothing muc h to commend it. Does anybody know what happened toTorpado?  They made great bikes before WWII and probably through the 1950s.  By the 1970s their product looked q uite mediocre, or at least the examples I have seen.  Did they just fade away or were they absorbed by another manufacturer?
