Pirol Scooters

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured in the years 1951 to 1954 by Pirol Werke GmbH, Dortmund.

Pirol had absorbed the Schweppe company, and they also built the Miranda with 150cc Sachs and 200cc Kurchen engines.

The Pirol 1952 sales brochure shows a 200cc scooter with the headlight mounted well-forward on the frong guard, along with two scooter combinations. One has a passenger sidecar, and the other a caravan-shaped carry box.
