BAUER, Germany 1936 - 1953 (or 1956)

L. Bauer & Co. (Bauer-Werke GmbH), Klein-Auheim, Main

The L. Bauer & Co factory in Klein-Auheim started as a bicycle factory in 1919. In 1936 some small pedal-assisted motorcycles with 74cc (or 75cc) and 98cc Sachs engines were added to the production line. After World War II some models with Sachs and ILO engines of 97cc to 174cc were produced with great success. Then they designed their own engine, a 248cc OHV four-stroke with both the carburettor and the exhaust port at the rear of the cylinder head. Some technical problems were never solved, and at the end of 1953 motorcycle production ended.

Models:

B 98/2: 98cc Sachs engine, 3 HP, twospeed, 1949-1953
B 100: 98cc 98cc Sachs engine, 3 HP, twospeed, 1950-1953
B 125: 123cc ILO engine, 5.5 HP, threespeed, 1951-1952
B 150: 147cc Sachs engine, 6.5 HP, fourspeed, 1952-1953
B 175: 174cc ILO engine, 7.5 HP, threespeed, 1951-1953
B 250: 248cc Bauer fourstroke engine, fourspeed, 12HP, top speed 110 Kilometers per hour, 1952-1953

Differences in B150s
Bauer B150
I was Looking at the German web sites when I came across  Friedrich Gunther's FG-EVENTFOTO.DE site And seen photos of a Bauer B150 all original with painted tanks.His album is called 100 years Bauer Works KL. Auheim. I heard that they came both ways but never seen one till I saw his site. When I restored my bike I also painted my tanks. Also they made a change where the speedo drive is, as shown in the drawings. I believe that change was made in 1952. My 52' has it in the right engine cover. I wished that this gets posted on the Bauer site, thanks Rich Butler

In the message I sent just before this one, I might have written that my Bauer was a 52'. If i did could change that to a 51'. And could you check that I wrote the speedo drive change was between 1950 and 1951. Thanks Rich Butler and sorry about that.

Bauer B250 Correction
Bauer B250
I found this article and picture of a Bauer B250 that shows that the carb and the exhaust are both on the back side of the cylinder head. Where as some articles state that the carb was mounted on the front. The article is from "The Encyclopedia Of The Motorcycle" By Hugo Wilson copyright 1995. I wish that can be posted on the Bauer site.
