A Brief History of the Marque

Maskinfabrik John Eriksson, Falun
Prewar machines were mostly 98cc. Postwar they used many Panther engines and chassis components, in addition to some from NSU. They built a range of very attractive machines.

In the early 50s they also produced some NSU-powered machines:
1952: MC25, a modifided NSU 251 OSL of 242cc
1953: MC100, based on the NSU Konsul II, a 496cc fourstroke.

Murray Barnard's site has several good images and some useful history.
