Bohme Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufacturer: Martin Böhme
1925-1930

Founded by Dr. Martin Böhme, the machines were relatively sophisticated for the day, being fitted with pressurised water-cooled (Thermosiphon-Wasserkühlung) engines, drum brakes front and rear, and a twin-downtube frame. Early examples were built by Gehre-Dampfmesser GmbH Berlin, who manufactured among other things steam engine components.

The Bohme firm vanished early in the depression.
