Eibach Three-wheelers by Ernst Eichler

Ernst Eichler

Eichler & Bachmann G.m.b.H., Berlin NW 7, Am Weidendamm 1a.

After falling out with other members of the firm, founder Ernst Eichler left Eichler & Co to start a new company in July 1923.

Eichler produced the Eibach, a commercial three-wheeler powered by DKW and their own Eibach engines. Presented at the Leipzig Technical Fair in the Spring of 1925, the Eibach Motortransportdreirad Typ 1926 had a 4 h.p. DKW engine below the driver's seat in similar manner to the Lomos. The goods compartment was forward of the driver, above the front wheels, and had a payload of 250kg.

Eichler's company failed in 1926. None of his vehicles have survived.
