Goliath Tricars

A Brief History of the Marque
In 1921, German entrepreneur Carl F.W. Borgward (1890-1963) established the Bremer Kuhlerfabrik Borgward & Co., an automotive radiator company in Bremen, Germany. He also designed a two-horsepower, three-wheeled courier motorcycle called the Blitzkarren (Lightning Cart), powered by a DKW 300ccc twostroke engine, and later the Goliath three-wheeler which, by 1925, was used by the German and Polish postal service for mail deliveries.

Borgward also designed and produced microcars, numerous automobiles including sports and racing cars, and during the war years military trucks, half-tracks and military tractors.

Postwar, Borgward was detained for some time due to his Nazi connections. By 1948 he was back at work, producing among many interesting machines including a three-wheeled speed record car which reportedly took 38 records in France in the Sidecar Combinations category during 1951. The machine met with a dreadful accident late in the year and the rider was killed.
