Manurhin Scooters

A Brief History of the Marque
Starting in 1952 Manhurin produced the German DKW Hobby scooter by incorporating locally made components and rebranding it as the Manurhin MR75 in Europe and the Concord in the UK. According to Bonhams the MR 75 "was constructed to a high standard and must have been one of the first motorcycles to be painted electrostatically, a process commonly known as 'powder coating'". When DKW ceased production of the Hobby, Manurhin continued with its version, which in 1957 occupied third place in the European scooter sales chart behind Lambretta and Vespa.
