Presto Motorcycles of Germany

A Brief History of the Marque

The Presto Motorrad Company of Frankfurt operated between 1938 to 1944.

The Presto 210 had a conventional frame and was powered by Fichtel & Sachs engines of either 74, 98 or 125cc.

The Presto Saxonette had a single tube which served as the tank, the cradle for the front forks and the base for the support of the seat. The company referred to it as the 'cross frame'. The engine was a 50cc Fichtel & Sachs power plant built into the rear wheel.

Not to be confused with the French Presto of the 1930s
