Sanglas was a Spanish producer for motorcycles. They built motorcycles for the Spanish police and for the Irish army.

At the end of the 1950s, due to the rise of four-wheeled vehicles, many motorcycle manufacturers were forced to reduce the displacemt of their models. The result was the model known as “Chromática”, with 295 cc engine, 13 HP power and 6,000 rpm. In 1959 480 units are sold, 250 to public agencies and 230 to individual clients. The Chromática nickname was due to the four colors (blue, salmon, green and black) with which it was supplied.
