Almora Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Almora Motor & Fahrzeug AG, Kassel

Built in Germany between 1924 and 1925, the firm attempted to produce a successful version of the crude oil engine designed by Löwy, a two-stroke engine which ran on crude oil after starting on petrol. It appears that there were two or three versions built, from 113cc to 176cc, but the power output was far too low and the venture failed. Another marque which used a similar design and the same engine was Albertus.
