Bismarck Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque
Manufactured: 1904-1957

Between 1904 and 1908 Bismarck made large V-Twins with engines from Minerva, Anzani and Fafnir of up to 1300cc. They ceased manufacture of motorcycles in 1908, resuming in 1931 with motorized bicycles of 75cc & 98cc from JLO and Sachs. After WWII they produced two-strokes of 98cc to 175cc with Sachs and ILO engines in a frame designed by Emil Fischer. They also built bicycles.

The company filed for bankruptcy in 1957 and production ceased.

1952 Models: Moped Ilo FP 50, LM 98 K Ilo, LM 125 K, M 150 K Sachs

Bismarck 1952
Germany 150cc, twostroke engine
Hi, I am Johannes Kurniawan, I come from east java, Indonesia. I found Bismarck motorcycle made in 1952 Germany. As long as i know this motorcycle is still one item only at Indonesia with special condition, It's about 95% original painted and spareparts. There are only three items which are not original: stop lamp, cover chain drive, and rubber tank. Beside that, I also have the police paper as you can see in the picture. if you want to share about this motorcycle you can call me at +6281703335054/+6281913115444
