Stolz Sidecars

A Brief History of the Marque

This small manufacturer was located in the outskirts of Berlin. The company was started in 1921 and by the 1930s was a major player.

Their machines came in a large variety of models, from simple single-seater to more luxurious models with leather interior, as well as models for industrial applications. The suspension was often by large rubber bands and the styling was reminiscent of the torpedo-style used by several other manufacturers.

In the mid 1930s they appeared with a racing model which competed in the 500cc and other sidecar classes successfully at international level.

At the end of the 1930s they ceased production of civilian models.
