Boge Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufacturer: Otto Boge KG, Bielefeld

The company fitted their own sidevalve engines to the motorcycles they produced, and they also built racing machines fitted with Velocette and Blackburne engines.

The firm is still in business (boge.com) and it seem likely they produced Boge shock absorbers which were fitted as standard equipment to BMW /5 and /6 R series motorcycles during the 1970s, and possibly other models.
