Josef Walter built his first scooter prototype in 1947, beginning production in 1952. Equipped with DKW 125cc and 175cc engines, the machines were of considerable quality but the price was rather too high for the market to bear and as a result sales were poor, with total output of 201 scooters by the time the small factory ceased manufacture in 1954.
125cc DKW with a top speed of 80kph.
175cc DKW with a top speed of 90kph
N.B. Several other firms used variations of the Colibri brand.
