Stoewer Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured 1904-1905 by Gebrüder Stoewer, Fabrik für Motorfahrzeuge, Stettin (now Szczecin, Poland)

The firm built three-wheelers and a motorcycle powered by a Fafnir engine. Subsequently they built automobiles until 1945.

Falter-Werke acquired the rights to the "Stoewer's Greif" name in 1938 and built bicycles and later mopeds of that name.

Junak motorcycles and motor tricycles were built in the former Stoewer works until the mid sixties.

Considerable information on the firm may be found at Axel Oskar Mathieu Archive.
