Dürkopp History
Factory founded 1867 by Nikolaus Dürkopp, producing motorcycles before the turn of the century. Motorcycle manufacture ceased between 1912 and 1927. Production of all motorcycles and scooters ended in 1961 as sewing machines were proving more profitable.

In the 1920's the Dürkopp automobile factory employed over 6000 workers building a range of cars which included models from 1500cc to over 6 litres.

In 1954 Dürkopp built the Diana scooter, a relatively luxurious unit with electric start and a four-speed gearbox for its 200cc two-stroke engine. Production of this model ended in 1961.

Durkopp Diana Bicycle
I am having incredible difficulty finding any information on this bicycle.  Can anyone help me identify it and tell me a little about it?  I'm not sure if it is rare or not. I'm not sure how to tell exactly what decade it is from either. Any help would be wonderful. Thanks!

Durkopp Diana Sport
Attached photo of my Diana in the late 50s.

Had a partial seizure after 200  mile trip, engine distmantled by M/c expert who said it was the finest 2stroke engine he had ever seen, and he could not understand why a needle bearing had disintegrated as the lubrication was fine.
Toured Holland & Belgium in the following 2 weeks and everything went fine.

HI I own a Dürkopp bike under a Portuguese registration as being a MD176 model from 1958. The bike is a 2stroke single cylinder 175cc with 2 exhaust pipes, one on each side. I'm trying to find out as much as I can about it, things like manufacturer's history, technical designs (restoration is involved), parts' dealers, market value etc. It looks like a DKW 175 of 1957 but with an extra exhaust. Any information welcome. THANKS. --  Paulo Noronha  --  psergionoronha at hotmailimg
