Kel-Cha Motor AG, Camorino, Tessin. 1929 - 1932

Karl Victor Keller (1896-1961) ran a motorcycle business at Ausstellungsstrasse in Zurich selling FN and ACE. He built a motorcycle with a 397cc sidevalve engine of unit construction with an aluminium crankcase and a cast-iron cylinder head. The 19" wheels were painted bright red - spokes, nipples and rims. Only one model was produced, and although attractive with its clean, neat and very Swiss design it proved too expensive for the market, which was in free-fall.
