Hiekel Motorrad

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured by Curt Hiekel Maschinenfabrik of Leipzig-Thekla from 1925 to 1932

Using their own 348cc two-stroke engines driving via a Hurth or Pfeiffer gearbox, the motorcycles remained largely unchanged throughout the production years although some later machines had front brakes. Five are known to have survived.
