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 motorcycles with 75cc and 98cc Sachs engines were added to the production line. After World War II some models with SACHS and ILO engines were produced with great success. Then they designed their own engine, a 248cc four-stroke with the carburetor in front of the engine and the exhaust port at the rear of the cyclinder head. Some technical problems were never solved, and at the end of 1953 motorcycle production ended.
