Wegro Motorcycles

Manufactured by Vis Gesellschaft für Kleinfahrzeuge GmbH of Berlin, 1922-1923.

The firm was founded by Carl Freiherr von Wangenheim in 1921. Prior to World War I he was known as a designer of agricultural tractors built under the brand name "Karwa" (Karl von Wagenheim) at Hanomag and later by BMW.

Vis designed and built this scooter-like machine using a 452cc two-stroke vertical twin. Kurt Passow worked with this firm and was also associated with the Pawa and Per brands which built motorcycles similar in concept.
