Albertus Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

lbertus Fahrzeugwerk AG, Achern (Baden)

One of the numerous short-lived manufacturers of the immediate post-WWI era, Albertus machines were powered by a Lowy-designed engine which ran on crude oil. It was not a success and in 1924, two years after it began manufacture, production ceased.

Ozebook has an image of a 1922 142cc model here.

Another machine which used the Lowy design was the Almora.
