Fend Microcars

A Brief History of the Marque

Fritz Fend was the designer of a three-wheeled invalid carriage and the Fend Flitzer.

An aeronautical engineer with the Luftwaffe during the war, Fend began development of invalid carriages for his disabled colleagues in 1948 at his workshop in Rosenheim. Initially these were muscle-powered, with the rider pushing back and forth on the handlebars. He then fitted a Victoria bicycle engine of 38cc.

The next project was the Fend Flitzer, which had two front wheels and a powered rear wheel. Around 250 were sold by 1951, at which time Fend formed an agreement with Messerschmitt to build his design and thus was born the KR175 Kabinenroller.
