Pan and Everest Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marques

Manufactured by Konstruktor GmbH of Berlin, 1924-1926

The firm produced the Pan with a 500cc Kühne engine in 1924. The following year the brand was renamed Everest, but was basically the same machine.

Tragatsch writes that the Everest was built by G.A. Rempp of Münster and was fitted with a 496cc ohv Rempp engine - see also GAR.

The firm succumbed to the inflation crisis sweeping the nation.

NB. Everest is unrelated to the French marque of the same name.
