Tragatsch Motorcycles

Built in Czechoslovakia 1946-49
Erwin Tragatsch built long-track, grass-track and speedway motorcycles along with road racers powered by mostly JAP speedway engines of 348 and 498cc. He is the author of the book which resides on every motorcycle historians shelf and is a primary source of reference.
Long before the book Schindler's Ark was written by Australian author Tom Keneally and subsequently turned into the film Schindler's List by Stephen Speilberg, Tragatsch wrote a piece on Oskar Schindler which was only discovered long after Erwin's death.
