Laro Lastenroller

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured by Morobau G.m.b.H, Kaltenkirchen (Holstein), 1947-1951

The Laro Lasten-Roller appeared at the 1949 Frankfurt fair with a 123cc JLO two-stroke engine driving the rear wheel by chain. The cargo box was mounted above the two front wheels which were steered by motorcycle-style handlebars and had a payload of 165kg. A "breech-loader" model was later introduced with a single front wheel, type Laro H, using 145cc and 200cc JLO engines.

Production in Germany ceased in 1951. It is possible that Puch then built them until 1956.
