Hamlet Motorcycles


A Brief History of the Marque

The first Hamlet motorcycles were produced in 1904.The frame was a strengthened cycle frame and a Fafnir, Moto Reve or a Motosacoche motor was fitted. Only a few of these machines were ever built. After a takeover the factory began producing mopeds and small three wheeled goods vehicles. In 1939 a light motorcycle was unveiled. This was a proper motorcycle fitted with a Fichtel & Sachs 98cc motor and a two speed gearbox. Production of this model stopped in 1943 due to difficulties in finding a replacement for the German Fichtel & Sachs engine.
