Germany 1924, designed by Johannes Paessler, the Aristos had a box-like, welded frame (possibly by Mars) and a 614cc flat-twin water cooled engine. The Aristos was a good looking machine, but due to some weak points in design and the dreadful economic situation only a few were sold. (In 1923 one U.S. dollar was worth 4.2 trillion marks and Germany was printing 100 Million Mark notes. This lead to political instability and the rise of Nazism.)
