A Brief History of the Marque
In 1953 the Faka factory in Salzgitter-Bad (Germany) continued to build the Walba scooter. The space-aged design with the fake jet air intake under the seat was attractive, but the price was too high and the magazines wrote about some certain disadvantages, so production ended in 1957.
FAKA had purchased the rights to the Troll scooter after its demise in about 1951.
The firm also built three-wheel delivery vehicles, with the F&S engine mounted above the front wheel and a tray at the rear. These were exported to countries as far afield as El Salvador in Central America.
