RMW Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

The Ruhrtal-Motorradwerke R.M.W. firm in Neheim-Ruhr was formed after the death of one of the partners in Bleha, in 1925.

Under the RMW marque motorcycles were built using engines produced in-house, and also engines from Mabeco of Berlin. By 1927 they were producing 600cc Mabeco-engined V-Twins, copies of the Indian Scout.

In 1933 another plant was opened in Sauerland which built machines under the Phönix (Phoenix) label, a marque which became very successful - so much so that the RMW models were rebadged as Phoenix.

The firm survived the war, but the grey years of the post-war period were too much and the company folded.
