Torpado still exists, http://www.torpado.com/. In fact, they recently bought the FONDRIEST brand.

snip: 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?
