Goebel Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured at Finkenstraße 52, Bielefeld

Karl Goebel's firm Goebel Fahrzeugfabrik produced some 30 different types of motorcycles and mopeds through the late 1940s into the 1980s.

The firm acquired the Meister company in the mid-to-late 1950s, and with it the Mammut and presumably Phanomen brands.

Some of the models sold in this period were rebadged Meister mopeds, and the 1972 catalogue listed both the Goebel Mofa and the Meister Mofa.

Goebel used Lutz engines 1949-1952 (JF)

Karl Goebel died in 1974, and Schminke of Bad Wildungen purchased the company in 1975.
