Eichler & Co. were among the largest manufacturers of light motorcycles in Germany in the first half of the 1920s.. The red 119-173 cc machines were equipped with DKW engines and the 129-149 cc versions used Bekamo. 1925 was the last year of production for the Eichler. Two of the other brands survived into 1926.

The Gaggenau motorcycle produced by Eichler & Co. 1925-1926 was identical to the EGA built by Eisenwerke Gaggenau AG in Gaggenau. Shortly before that company ceased production Eichler had acquired stock in Munich and released the 350cc single-cylinder two-stroke model under the name Gaggenau. Production lasted for only one year.

The firm also built the Lomos for DKW.
