German motorcycle 1903-1942 by Walter G.m.b.H. in Mühlhausen & Thüringen
A Walter Model 5 from the early years of the 20th century, resides at Kamen Castle in the Czech Republic.
Jeane Herveu, one of the first women to race, rode a Walter with an OHV Buchet engine in the 1903 M.C.F. Concours in France. An example of this machine, possibly the same one, was part of the Guélon Collection.
A Walter sidecar was made in Germany - see the page on Sidecars
There are two Czech Walter marques, one built 1901-1928 and the other from about 1948 by his son Jaroslaw. One of these is in the collecton of the Solvang museum, California, a 250cc OHC or possibly DOHC road-racer with plunger suspension.
