Gritzner Motorcycles


Made in Germany
1903-1970s


A Brief History of the Marque

The Gritzner-Kaiser AG factory was originally known for its sewing machines. From 1903 to 1962 they built a large variety of motorcycles and three-wheelers, initially using Fafnir singles and V-twins and then after WWII Sachs two-strokes. Their last machines were 49cc two-strokes.

The firm was established in 1872, and built their first bicycles in 1887. Motorcycle production paused during the first war, and from the armistice until 1940 they built commuter motorcycles. Postwar production resumed in 1948, again with commuter machines powered by Sachs engines of 48cc to 175cc. The factory was largely destroyed by fire in 1955, and the firm merged with the Pfaff sewing machine company, trading as Gritzner-Pfaff. They obtained the rights to the Mars Monza, building these until the 1970s.

Gritzner Brummi
Hello - I am searching out the make and name for a moped a friend of me has. It has a plate with Brummi on it and it has a Sachs 50 cc engine. I think it is a Gritzner - but maybe you could confirm that? Where can I find litterature/pictures of the Brummi ?
