ADI Tricycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Arthur Diehler, Fahrzeugfabrik, Berlin. 1950-1954

After 1945 Arthur Diehler manufactured tricycles based on pre-war technology. Diehler machines had the advantage of low tax and insurance, and very good fuel economy. The ADI was powered by a 118 cc JLO motor mounted directly over the front wheel, with a chain drive to the hub. By 1954 the concept had become unfashionable and Arthur Diehler ceased production.
