Zetge Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured 1922-1925

Zimmer & Gehlich, Zetge Fahrzeugwerke, Moys-Görlitz.

Built good quality lightweight motorcycles and three-wheelers using engines of their own manufacture in 142cc and 173cc capacities, and also two-strokes from DKW in similar sizes. The three-wheelers had the engine mounted forward and above the front wheel and had such names as Zetgelette and Zetgemobil. The solo Einheitsmodell had an unusual and quite shapely appearance.

The company changed hands around 1925 with Hans Knipp of Dresden assuming control, and the brand became Zegemo.
