Rollfix Commercial Three-wheelers

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured by RollfixEilwagen G.m.b.H. of Wandsbek, near Hamburg, 1923-1936

Three-wheeled transport-wagens, some of which came under the tax-free class, fitted with JLO and DKW engines. Produced in both "muzzle-loader" and "breech-loader" forms, they did well until the mid-1930s when they experienced stiff competition from Zundapp and Goliath in a declining market.

In 1934, Rollfix-Werke Frederic Schröder KG, also of Wandsbek, took over the production and marketed them under the Motrix name until 1935 or 1936, by which time annual sales had dropped substantially.
