A Brief History of the Marque
Made in Austria
Manufacturer: Trautmannsdorfer Fahrzeug GmbH
The firm was founded in 1922 by Franz Döller, Ignaz Seidl and Theodor Hauler and produced the first DSH in 1923 with a Geroth engine. By 1924 they were marketing models with engines from Villiers, and 1925-27 saw the addition of JAP and MAG models with capacities of 350cc to 750cc.
The onset of the financial crisis combined with the death of one their racing team members brought disaster to the firm and production ceased in 1928.
The following year Franz Döller resurrected the DSH marque and presented a new model, and continued production until 1932.

The firm also advertised Humber motorcycles in 1925.
Works: Fernruf: Gotzendorf 2
Sales Support: Wien, V. Wiedner Hauptstr. 99
An Inzersdorf business address is also mentioned. The Vienna address is probably post-1928.
This sad event is believed to have been a major factor in the collapse of the company.
Notes. One source states that production was taken over by the Austria marque.

(later)... the motorcycle DSH mounted engine DKW. I was afraid whether or not the non-professional did not..
Do not you have a picture of how the motorcycle looks original ? Do you know the production number 1061 year of production ?
The engine starts badly the hand crank, it can not be extended without being distracted. - not possible.
In October are the ramen motorcycle races in Pardubice, I woud like to attend.
