History

Tomos was established in 1954. A Slovenian manufacturer located in the city of Koper, Tomos started building motorcycles and mopeds with the Austrian company Puch. Tomos mopeds are still in production today and are one of the few remaining moped brands available on the US market.

Tomos mopeds are also produced in Epe, the Netherlands, and have been since 1966. The Dutch development team is responsible for the introduction of models like the Colibri, Targa and Revival. Tomos is the last remaining moped factory in the Netherlands, surviving at least 36 others since 1966.

Tomos A3: Early (earliest?) Tomos engine. May or may not have oil injection. Came with either Encarwi carb (earlier models) or Dellorto 14.12 carb.
Tomos A3N: Like a Tomos A3, but has a 12mm wrist pin bushing. This allows for use of Puch speed kits without modification.
Tomos A5: Somewhat later (?) Tomos engine. This is an A35 variant, but with larger ports (and probably some other differences too.)
Tomos A35: More recent Tomos engine. Uses reed valves.
Tomos A55: Most recent Tomos engine.

This information comes from these two discussions on the forums. ONE TWO
