AWD Motorcycles

A.W.D. Germany 1921 - 1978 (or 1979).
August Wurring, Breitscheid/Düsseldorf

The marque's name is derived from the initials and location of the manufacturer - August Wurring, Dusseldorf.

A.W.D. built frames for racing motorcycles, and complete motorcycles with 123cc to 499cc DKW, Kühne, Küchen, JAP, Blackburne, Villiers, ILO, and Sachs engines.

From the 1950s on they produced limited numbers of sports machines using twin-cylinder 250cc JLO engines, continuing activities until 1979 when production of the JLO engine had long ceased. It is postulated that they either had NOS engines, or rejuvenated old ones.
