1963 German Two-Wheel Museum – Deutsches Zweirad Museum, Neckarsulm, Germany

Numerous exhibits including, push bikes, high-wheelers, historic motorcycles and racing machines

Antique & classic two-wheelers shown in this article are:

-A dainty, Anzani-powered 2.4 liter (146.5 cubic inches) belt drive special used immediately after WWI to tow a bicyclist up to world-record speeds.

-Sample of the Zweirad Museum wall cartoons, depicting an early race.

-Displays like the Baum “flying lawnchair” are frequently loaned to motorcycle shows (here Frankfurt) so you never know what the three-story museum may hold on a given day.

-The date is obvious (1902), but their first Neckarsulm powered bicycle couldn’t be called a “motorrad,” or motorcycle, in Germany because that name had been patented.

-Before Gottlieb Daimler built an automobile he put the motor in this two-wheeler, in 1885. The original was destroyed; this is a copy.

-One regular there is the Megola built in the Twenties in Munich. The five-cylinder rotary motor drove the front wheel via a planetary drive.

-This 1820 Munich push bike required one man-power to get you around town before the days of motors.

Vintage Motorcycle Racing article has a drawing of the Road Course at Camp Callan near Del Mar, Calif. off of highway 101. Shaded blocks are danger areas.

“The following was received by us from Al Papp of Hollywood. It expresses his opinion on the future of paved road racing in the United Stages. He also gives his ideas on how he thinks the sport can be improved as he outlines certain factors from a spectator’s standpoint. Mr. Papp conducted a series of Class “A” Short-track races before and after the war. He also put on one of America’s first all-paved road races at Santa Ana, as well as arranged for and conducted the motorcycle races held in conjunction with the Sport Car races at Camp Callan, Del Mar, California…”
