Gigant Motorcycles

Manufactured by Motorradbau Johann Teichert, Vienna 1936-1938.

Formerly of Delta-Gnom [1], Johann Teichert and his brother Rudolf built quality motorcycles using JAP engines, Burman gearboxes, Bosch electric and Amal carburetors. Frames and other components were built in the Teichert factory. 498cc and 598cc singles along with 750cc V-twin models were constructed until the Nazis arrived.

Gigant built machines for the gifted Austrian rider Martin Schneeweiss.

The firm continued production after the war, until about 1950.
