A Brief History of the Marque

Sophisticated in design, these shaft-drive German motorcycles had two-stroke engines intially of Evans type before building their own Heuss-designed power units of 173cc to 298cc.

The original machine was built in Berlin-Niederschöneweide by a company named Stock Motorpflug AG starting in early 1924; initially they produced motorized farming machinery. This company had earlier been purchased by a Jewish industrialist by the name of Richard Kahn of Mannheim who owned various manufacturing enterprises in Germany.

In the early 1920 Kahn began production of small motorcycles and used as a pattern the machines produced by the Evans Motor Cycle Company, USA, which had recently ceased trading. These 119cc machines were built by Stock with little changed but the badges until 1928.

Stock hired a mechanical engineer named Heuss who designed an entirely new machine. In the early 1930s production was moved to another of Kahn's properties at the Schnellpressenfabrik works in Heidelberg.

Kahn left (or was removed from) the company around 1931, and the bank foreclosed in 1933. The banks did very well indeed during this period.
