A Brief History of the Marque

The Wittler firm (Heinrich Wittler & Co., postwar Wittler Bros.) of Bleichstraße 77a, Bielefeld,

Founded in 1924, the company built motorcycles powered by 250cc two-strokes during that decade.

Post-war, they built lightweights, mopeds and motorised tricycles using JLO, Sachs and possibly Zundapp engines 1950-1956.

There was also a Wittler moped produced in Horsens, Denmark during the 1950s by Hede Nielsens Fabriker. It seems likely that they were built under licence to the German company, but used engines from VAP, BFC, Estonia, Express and others. There was a considerable variety of models. The same firm apparently built, or marketed, Wotan mopeds.
