The factory was located near Chemnitz. The company name was Elite-Diamant but the motorcycles were marketed as Diamant.

Built tricycles and motorcycles with Fafnir and their own V-Twin engines. In 1926 Diamant built 350cc single-cylinder models with engines from Kuehne. Designer of the Diamant was Franz Gnädig, who was previously a partner in the famous K.G. Krieger-Gnädig firm.

Diamant built motorcycles powered by 75cc and 100cc Sachs two-stroke engines until 1935.

Hello, my name is Mohammed Javid Hussain, I find your website where is some info about DIAMANT motorbike. I live in Sharjah United Arab Emirates and Indian National. I would like to know everything about DIAMANT motorbike, coz my father had DIAMANT about 40 years ago which was declared crowd puller bike one and only piece in India in such emasculate condition. The Sport of 1938 had a 98cc Sachs and came in different styles, but few details are known, during the war they even made a wood burning engine. And I have few awards winning collection of other motor bikes like MILITARY TRIUMPH, TWIN TRIUMPH, and I have little pictures of DIAMANT, some documents, and small ornamentation hand from motorbike. If you have some other info about DIAMANT or pictures please send it to me.

From Sheldon:
Cristiofer,
Your note has been posted on the Diamant page at the European Motorcycle Universe web site. We just noticed that the link to your site no longer works. Is there a new link? Or could you send me the info and photos and I could post them on the page?

January 6, 2003
Hello
That's right, that my old link no longer works.
There is new link, to new page, unfortunately only in polish language.
There is some information, and story (How can I start adventure with Diamant motobikes), about Diamant motobikes, and also AWO-SIMSON-SPORT, which I have now. And some other info, about other old motobikes.

If you want, I send you these information which I have, but they are not many, like the photos.

The new link is http://www.motocykle.krakow.prv.pl [404]
