Lesshaft Dreirad

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured by Lesshracht & Co., Berlin N 65, Chausseestrasse 72, 1925-1926

The first model was a motor-dreirad with an air-cooled 133cc Rinne engine and Sturmey-Archer gearbox driving by belt to to the left rear wheel. It was eligible for the tax-free bracket.

In 1926 a similar machine with a larger water-cooled engine was presented at the Berlin Motor Show. Hyperinflation took its toll, and like so many others the company folded.
