Kreidler History

Motorbike manufacturing emerged from the metal works plant founded in 1904 by Anton Kreidler in Stuttgart. In the early 1920s, after finishing his studies at the Technical University in Stuttgart, Alfred Kreidler, son of the company founder, began gaining design experience in Berlin in the automobile industry among others. Following his personal inclination, he designed, built and sold fast motorbikes. They were 350-cm³ bikes with a pushrod motor and an engine power of 12 hp. Not bad for the time. The brand name Pan was located on the fuel tank. Up into the 1980s, Kreidler manufactured mopeds, mokicks, small and light motorbikes with a capacity of between 50 and 80 cm³. Alfred Kreidler began developing motorbikes unter the brand name Kreidler in 1949, after he had taken over the company management in 1942. The first Kreidler in 1951 was a unthrottled motorbike with a 50-cm³ motor and engine power of 2,2 hp, product name K 50. The last new development, an 80-cm³ Kreidler with a horizontal cylinder and “Target Design“ never made it onto the market after the company declared bankruptcy on 12 March 1982 and manufacturing was shut down. The Kreidler brand continued to exist in Kreidler Zweiradgesellschaft. Initially, Garelli mopeds – using tanks from the Kreidler Flory moped – were sold under the Kreidler brand name. In 1986, the company began manufacturing Kreidler bicycles and in 1996, production of motorised bikes was resumed.
