Baier Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Founded by Wilhelm and Karl Baier, Windscheidstrasse 10 Berlin-Charlottenburg, in 1923.

1924-1928 Engines & Apparatefabrik Wilhelm Baier, Berlin
1928-1930 Baier-engine GmbH, Berlin

Built a range of two-stroke singles, some of unit-construction, and a sole 492cc double-pistoned single.

The Baier brand was one of the great congregation of Berlin's two-stroke manufacturers that were available first as shapely 198cc and 249cc single-cylinder models and from 1927 with double-piston engines. The 500cc two-stroke, single-cylinder model with dual-piston engine was very unreliable and inefficient in operation.

Baier sold engines and perhaps complete motorcycles to Württembergia. Their engines were also sold in quantity to FUBO of Stuttgart.

In 1930 the production of motorcycles ceased.
