A Brief History of the Marque
German motorcycle 1903-1942 by Walter G.m.b.H. in Mühlhausen & Thüringen
A Walter Model 5 from the early years of the 20th century, resides at Kamen Castle in the Czech Republic.
Jeane Herveu, one of the first women to race, rode a Walter with an OHV Buchet engine in the 1903 M.C.F. Concours in France. An example of this machine, possibly the same one, was part of the Guélon Collection.
For more information on the marques see German Resources
There is also a Walter sidecar, and a two Czech Walter marques, one built 1901-1928 and the other from about 1948 by his son Jaroslaw.
There is a 1948 Walter 250 at the Solvang museum. This is probably a Czech machine built by Jaroslaw Walter.
