Blessing Tricycles and Cyclemotors

A Brief History of the Marque

1898-1900 Blessing of Göppingen and Augsburg.

Oskar Blessing designed and built tricycles based on the developments of Ludwig Rüb, and these were similar to the machines built by Heinle & Wegelin.

Beginning in 1898 the firm also built their ¼ h.p. Werner-based Type A bicycle auxiliary engine followed by a Type B of ½ h.p.

There appears to have been some relationship with Progress of Germany and the Cyclone works.
