Meybein Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured by Willibald Meyer, Mittfeld

From 1922 to 1926 the firm employed DKW 119cc and 142cc two-strokes engines, along with a 269cc two-stroke and another with a horizontal cylinder. Most if not all had belt drive to the rear wheel. The engines were very low slung in the frame, and the machines were of quite basic construction with rim brake on the rear wheel only.
