Schwager Motorcycles

Schwager's Rijwielen was a motorcycle manufactured by F.F. Schwager at Geertekerkhof 12, Utrecht in 1903 using their own engines.

The company was established in the 1880s to build machines for canal construction, and entered the bicycle trade in 1894. These attained very high quality and were beautifully presented in their catalogues. 1903 saw the first production of motorycles which used Austrian engines and marketed under the Sfinx brand. Although praised in the press, they were not a commercial success and production ceased in short order.
