Glas-Goggo Scooters

Hans Glas GmbH manufactured vehicles from 1950 to 1967.

From 1951 to 1956 scooters were built by the Bavarian farm equipment manufacturer Hans Glas Isaria-Maschinenfabrik in Dingolfing. They were initially built with engine displacements of 120cc, and later with 125cc, 150cc and 200cc. The 200cc version had an ILO engine with 11 HP and a top speed of 100 km per hour. There were sidecar versions (Beiwagen) and a three-wheel delivery vehicle (Lastenroller) based on the scooter was also produced.

Up to 120 scooters were built daily. Production ended in 1956 after 46,181 motor scooters and 485 cargo scooters had been built.

The Glas factory switched to car production with the Goggomobil, a 250-400cc microcar. The top model was the 3000cc V-8, nicknamed "Glaserati" due to its similarity to the Maserati 3500GT which came from the drawing board of the same Italian designer, Pietro Frua.

Goggo scooters were marketed in France as Isaria, a name which had been associated with the company since the early 1900s when it produced agricultural equipment and tools.

In 1966 the Glas company was sold to BMW who continued to build some Glas models with the BMW logo, among them the 1600 GT and the 3000 GT. Manufacture of the microcars ceased entirely in Bavaria, but several models were built under licence in Argentina during the 1960s.

The scooter lived on in East Germany - the Soviets had copied the Goggo 200 and built it without licence as the Tula T-200 and T-200 Cargo.

Sources: Hartmut Schouwer, wikipedia,, , et al..

The Goggo song was written Heinz Schmid-Wenzel in the mid-1950s on behalf of the Glas company's advertising department, and was recorded by Erika Blumberger and the Isarspatzen. It became very popular with Goggo riders and drivers and is something of a collectors item.

There is another version sung by Kary Barnet.

Hi to all enthusiasts. i have a 1956 200cc glas goggo scooter which i am busy restoring. There is signs of a previous heat seize and therefore would prefer to replace the piston or a possible rebore. I live in South Africa and finding it difficult to obtain a new piston and rings. The current bore size is 62.5mm. Anyone out there that is willing to assist me would be highly appreciated.

I own a GOGGO 200 Lastenroller, I am not sure what year it is. It is a 3 wheeler motorcycle. I received it used from my father when I was 14 years. I am now 70 years old. I think my father thought it was manufactured in the 40's. It needs restoring and the engine needs a new piston. When I was 16 a mechanic said it needed a new piston and well he lost the piston., but I have the rest of the engine. It has always been stored indoors with NO rust. If anyone has any information I would appreciate them contacting me. I am looking for a buyer. Can you tell me what this might be worth. If you need anymore information or pics, please let me know.
Thank You,

Goggomobil scooter help
1954 Goggo 200

I recently acquired a 200 cc Goggo that appears in decent original condition but know very little about working on these. I do have a 1958 Goggo limosette also, but it runs perfectly. The scooter has been idle for 10 to 12 years in a Chicago museum. Is there a repair manual I can purchase for this? I know i need some tune up parts like points. Can you direct me to someone that could help me? Any help is greatly appreciated.

gogomobile tires
bmw glas gogomobile
Hi we have relatives in germany who own a, they say a 1969 gogomobile, that they were married in. they would like to restore for their wedding anniversary. however they say they can't find the proper tires which are on the car a 440-10. they say the TUV wont pass it with any other size tire. I have found for older ggogomobiles a web site that lists 480-10. Which I believe would work just fine. Have you had any problems getting the right size tire or passing the german TUV with another size. Thank You.

I have been unable to find any reference to a 440-10 tyre, I'm afraid. I would recommend contacting some of the vintage tyre suppliers listed at Bikelinks here:
