Alwin Scooters

A Brief History of the Marque

Alwin produced a scooter in 1920. It was a rather strange and crude contraption as it wasn't fitted with a saddle, so it resembled a child's foot-propelled scooter, which the firm also produced. It was fitted with a 1.75 hp two-stroke engine with in-line crankshaft. The engine was fitted at the front and it had unsprung forks and a long handlebar stem. The tyres were solid and the fuel tank was clipped above the engine.
