Zündapp Bella Scooter-1954

Zündapp Bella Scooter-1954

 

Zündapp began producing motorcycles in 1917.  Their advertising slogan was “Motorrades für jedermann” or “Motorcycles for everyone.”  By 1938, Zündapp had produced more than 200,000 motorcycles, continuing to build motorcycles for the German army during WWII.  After the war, Zündapp took notice of the scooter craze sweeping Italy and designed the Bella Scooter based on popular Italian scooters.  It  was a hit, and was the most talked about scooter at the 1953 International Frankfort Show.  Riders liked the large diameter tube frame arching over the engine, and the large 12 inch tires.  With the long seat and large floorboard, the Bella was very capable of carrying two people.  The large, two gallon gas tank also made it possible to ride for long distances before refueling.  In 1985, Zündapp sold its production line to China.
