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, JAP and MAG with capacities of 125cc to 750cc.
The onset of the financial crisis, presumably, brought disaster to the firm and production ceased. That same year Franz Döller attempted to resurrect the DSH marque and presented a new model, and was still in business in 1932.

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 .
