Panther Motorcycles of Germany


A Brief History of the Marque
Pantherwerke AG
Manufactured mid-1930s-1963
According to Tragatsch this small German factory built two-stroke lightweights powered by 73cc & 98cc ILO and Sachs engines prior to WWII, and subsequently produced a wide range of machines including 32cc and 48cc mopeds and Sachs-powered motorcycles of up to 174cc. Some models were offered in Britain rebranded as Leopard Bobby which came in three models, the Mk3, Mk5 & Mk6. In 1953 they acquired the Anker marque and nearly identical mopeds were sold under both brands.

An interesting scooter-like prototype was built in the early 1950s, powered by a 200cc JLO engine. It did not achieve production.

There is an excellent article on the Leopard mopeds at the Moped Archive

Pantherwerke AG is unrelated to P&M Panther
