Neander Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufacturer: Neander of Düren

Ernst Neumann-Neander was famed as a talented artist in the fields of painting, sculpture, graphic arts and even poetry. His attention to the fields of yachting and automobiles was notable, but his true passion was the motorcycle, the first of which he built in 1886.

In the 1920s he built over 2000 motorcycles around his unique alloy frame, the licence for which was sold in 1928 to Opel

He also designed very sophisticated tricycles and quadricycles, but the market did not take to these.

In Durer, there is a street named for him.
