Patrick Barigault yearned for victory in motocross racing but it was not to be. He, therefore, turned his love of motorcycles to production. He was able to produce his first chassis in 1976 with the aid of a Bultaco 250. Having a special attachment to four-stroke engines, he designed his chassis to suit such an engine. He used the Honda XL500 engine to build his Honda Barigo bike which he named HB500.

While Barigault was not able to achieve success in motocross racing, he was able to achieve it as a manufacturer his motorcycles were recognized and applauded in a number of international competitions. In the 1982 Tunis rally and the Paris-Dakar one that followed the following year, Barigo motorcycles received quite a bit of attention.

In 1983, Barigo rolled out a new motorcycle. It was named 560 GRS and was created with the Special Raid in mind. The same year, BMW approached Barigo to build a new motorbike for its team. The new motorcycle became the first Barigo engine that featured an aluminum frame. It was built to compete at an enduro race but it did not. Following these models, Barigo began collaboration with Rotax, an engine manufacturer, and produced the 500 RCB, 500 RB and the Barigo 350 Military.

By the time 1984 rolled to a close, a new model named the 600 Baja was introduced. It was supposed to be a substitute for the RCB and RB models. Meanwhile, Barigault developed the F1 Desert which was described as quite interesting. Only two units were manufactured from the F1 Desert featuring 650cc and 750cc Ducati engines.

In 1986, La Magie Noire, a super motorad, was developed. Since the Magie Noire name was already taken by a perfume brand, the name was changed to Tanagra. It weighed only 120kgs and had 55HP. This motorcycle had real promise to be hugely successful. Unfortunately, the company was experiencing some crucial financial difficulties.

In spite of these issues, Barigo produced another stunner in 1993 which was named 600 Onixa and the GT that was to be used by the police. These two motorcycles did not fly off the shelves and Barigo went off on a tangent opting to produce a scooter that was called Barilec. The company shut its doors in March 1997 permanently and that was the end of Barigo.
