A Brief History of the Marque
The brothers Hans and Heinz Emmerich produced their first engines in 1948 and at the time the engines were quite revolutionary, producing considerably more power than their rivals and yet weighing only 14 pounds, half the weight of many others. Their first moped appeared in 1971, the water-cooled Solo with 10mm Bing carburettor. The engine cylinder had a jacket containing coolant, but no radiator or water pump.
Solo engines were also fitted to some Montgomery-Wards and Columbia mopeds.
Solo engines include Type 236 and 236, and Type 254 and 255 with water cooling.
