Amag Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Allgemeine Motorfahrzeug AG in Berlin

This was another of the short-lived factories which assembled motorcycles in Germany during 1924 and 1925. Production was limited to lightweights powered by 149cc Bekamo two-stroke engines.

Another source says "The Allgemeine Motorfahrzeug AG in Berlin was a marketing company that offered light motorcycles with 150 cc two-stroke engines under the brand name AMAG. The engines were probably from the adjacent engine Schmidt. Charles Reese provides a reference to this in his book "Motorcycles from Berlin". The Schmidt delivered the four-stroke engines and AMAG motorcycles were apparently built for contractors. AMAG itself contributed only sales."
