1953 Victoria Bergmeister

When introduced in 1951, the Bergmeister (Mountain Master) was radically different. A V-twin, but mounted transversely, with streamlined engine cases that even enclosed the carburetor. A series of chains instead of the usual gears are used in the transmission, resulting in quiet operation. Smooth and powerful, sufficient to have a side-car attached, it was a unique quality product from post-war Germany. This was the first motorcycle donated to the museum.
