Argus Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

1946-1948 Berlin

Argus Motorengesellschaft

This firm is probably the same firm which produced an extensive range of engines for German aviation from 1926, and which began in Berlin in 1906 and produced engines for Sikorsky and then the German air force during WWI.

After 1945, they began motorcycle production, and being aviation experts they produced a machine which was propellor-driven. It was not a great success, and production ceased in 1948.
