Göricke Motorcycles, Mopeds & Scooters

Made in Germany 1903-1960

Established in 1874 by August Göricke, the firm which eventually became Göricke-Werke Nippel & Co. built a factory in the town of Bielefeld and became well known for their high quality bicycles and motorcycles.

Between 1903 and 1912 they built motorcycles, tricycles and forecars with single cylinder and v-twin engines. Motorcycles of 1903 were fitted with Antoine engines of 2½ and 3hp, and from 1908 commercial tricyles were fitted with Fafnir V-twins of 425cc.

In 1924 ¹ they absorbed the Fabula concern, and built versions of that motorcycle. From 1927 to 1933 they produced motorcycles with 346cc and 496cc MAG engines, later also with Villiers and Blackburne engines.

The company fell into bankruptcy in 1929, and the following year was acquired by a German-Dutch consortium N.V.T.E. (Naam Looze Vennootschap Exploitatieder Göricke Fabrieken).

Between 1933 and 1939 they produced only light commuter motorcycles, the focus of their attention being on the bicycle market.

1949-1960: built motorcycles with two-stroke ILO and Sachs engines up to 197cc. Some of the ILO-engined machines may have been rebadged by the Swedish Monark concern. They also produced transport dreirad (tricycles) with Sachs 50cc and 97cc engines until 1959.

A twin was built using the JLO engine. About six were produced in 1954/55, one of which had swing-arm rear suspension and 16" wheels.

Having joined forces with Pantherwerke AG in 1964, Göricke remained in business building bicycles until 1983.

1. Some of the information above is from a source which proved questionable (JF). Elsewhere it is written that no motorcycles were produced by Goricke between 1915 and 1928, but it appears they built the Fabula machines some time after 1925 and sold them under their own brand.
