Raufoss Motorcycles

Raufoss Ammunisjonsfabrikke built Zundapp mopeds under licence to the German firm. The contract was signed in 1956 and they began building type 255 Zundapp engines, with complete mopeds of their own design appearing in late 1958. Frames and bodywork were produced in their factory, and they released models 110, 111, 112, 113 and 114. Early models were 2-speed, followed by 3-speed mopeds, and the final model, the 114, was a 4-speed with foot shift.

Production ceased around 1962, but small numbers were built until 1965 or '66. Twenty machines were exported to Turkey, and two to the United States.
