German Motorcycles

1961 AWO-Simson 425S with Stoye sidecar

Four-stroke sportbike of the popular East German marque. The town where the bikes were made is called Suhl. These bikes are 250cc despite the model number and are shaft-drive single cylinder. The sidecar has a trunk, and an art-deco look that draws attention.
