Degen Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Made in Austria

1924-1927 (some were made as late as 1930)*

Manufacturer: Franz Degner Wien XI, Angeligasse 54

Degen motorcycles were built using mostly JAP and Villiers engines.

The firm also manufactured components for other marques including frames for FAR and Bartisch, while front forks, wheel hubs and rims were produced for other companies.

Some evidence points at limited production of motorcycles as late as 1938, when Hitler invaded.

N.B. vox.co.at states that production was mostly 1924-27, but some were producced through the 1930s until 1938.
