Schnell-Horex Motorcycles

Karlsruhe, 1952-1954

Roland Schnell, who won the German 350 championship in 1951 on a modified Parilla, designed and built these racing machines using Horex OHC engines of 248, 348 and 498cc, the 350cc machine proving particularly competitive. Schnell and Horex dealer Herman Gablenz formed a company which produced some twelve machines over its short lifespan. Riders included Gablenz, H.P. Müller, Robert Zeller, Georg Braun, Erwin Aldinger and Fritz Kläger.
