History of the Marque: Sachs Hercules

Sachs was the largest manufacturer of two-stroke motorcycle engines in Europe during the fifties, sixties and seventies. These engines were used by many motorcycle manufacturers, Hercules being the most important of them.

HERCULES belongs the Sachs group and the Herculese bikes were sold under the Sachs or DKW brand in some countries, Australia for instance, and as Kieft in the UK in the 1950s. Perhaps the most interesting bike Herculese built was the W 2000, sold in some markets as the DKW W 2000. This was the first production bike with a 27HP Sachs rotary engine.

Some Hercules machines were fitted with JLO engines.

There's no pipe, no cables, but the frame's in great shape.
The tank has a couple little dents in it but otherwise in good shape.

Nov 20th 2005
Perhaps a little late that I encountered your message about the Hercules you got from your father. I bought a Hercules K103S in 1967 and had it for about 2 1/2 years. As you already mentioned, it had 4 gears and 8.2 hp. In that time, there were more small motorcycles of the sort, like the Zundapp KS100, which had the same amout of hp and gears. It costed me 1.495,- Dutch Florins. In Euro's that would be about 775,- I travelled daily from IJsselstein to The Hague (130 km v.v.) and it almost never let me down, which was quite good in those days. Only two times the Hercules quitted service: once the ignition timing had gone wrong, the sparkplug overheated and I made the mistake by not first turning it in by hand. I molested the thread, so the sparkplug punched out. A local blacksmith in the neighbourhood of where it happened fixed it temporarely, so I could get to work. The day after I had a helicoil turned in, which was a very good solution. The sparkplugs were not the usual 14 mm types, but 18 mm. That kind of sparkplugs were also fitted in DKW 2-stroke cars. In that time I was engaged to the wife I'm still married with and we went 2 times on the Hercules on holidays in Switzerland (2.000 kms v.v. per holiday with local trips ). For that occasion I mounted high handlebars; after the holidays the original one was set back.

I also remember that when the ignition timing had gone wrong, the bike drove backwards when I wanted to drive away after kicking it on. In Switzerland some spokes in the rear wheel broke, which I had fixed in Spiess near the "Thuner See" (Lake of Thun). After being returned in the Netherlands, I had all spokes replaced by those that were used in a Puch 250 SGS motorcycle. That bike also had 16" wheels. For that purpose, all the wholes had to be drilled out as those spokes were considerately thicker. The Hercules steered and braked very well. But as I was young and eager in those days, I wanted something new and bought a Puch M125. A nice little bike, about 4 hp more, but it couldn't satisfy me in the way the Hercules did.

All that is nearly 40 years ago; many motorcycles came and nowadays I own a retro styled Kawasaki W650 for four years now. The first time I own a motorcycle that I don't want to trade in after two years. Last time I searched for a Hercules K103S and I found one in my own country. Sadly enough, the owner of the shop died some time before, and his heirs do not seem to have inherate his skills and knowledge of classic motorcycles. They wanted Euro 5.000,- (fivethousand). Of course most of us want to get rich easy, but in this case I begrudged them. (www.classicmotors.nl) In the end I don't think I have told you something essentially new, but hopefully the story adds something to your Hercules experience.
With much regards,
Ron Wimmers, IJsselstein, Netherlands

I think I have a 1984 Zweirad Schieler moped. I'm trying to restore it.Here is all info I can see: Front tag-TYP;M2-504...Art;016. Bouj-1984. FAHRGESTELL, 504217168, Zul-GES-Gew; 150KG. Tires-Tube Type-Made in Australia 120X2.251. 2&1/4-16 moped.Max load 210LBS. 37 PSI. I thinkl it is 3 speed. Can you refer me to any source who might have parts? repair manual/anything; Etc. Thanks, old man Rudy

My daughter, Rozanne, had the moped in her antique shop for years. I offered to try to restore it. I asked her for photos due to my computer's shaky on/off again status.


There is considerable information on these machines at http://www.hercules-sachs.com/ Rudy, mostly in German. Also, there are many references to Sachs, Hercules and mopeds in Bikelinks - try searching on each of those terms. Ed.

HI,
I Have an 1954 or 57 Hercules, (I lost the original invoice), but no engine, the bike belonged to my grand father, then to my Dad, and now its mine. The Bike has been in perfect condition, until last month when a badly constructed wall, fall over it ( a shame after so many years), so the reconstruction its gonna be a little bit harder now. Since it does not have an engine, I'll like to get one, I think It was an 123 cc, or a 250, it use to have an electric starter, according to my late Father, So any any information regarding this bike will be greatly appreciated, and if anyone has an appropriate Sachs engine, I'm willing to make a deal.  --  Carlos  -- csbueno at hotmailimg

Hello everybody
I found your site today by chance and read our questions about Hercules-Bikes.  It´s a well known brand in Germany. Since approximately 10 Years the Nuernberger-Hercules-Werke didn't no more exist. The Fichtel+Sachs AG bought the licenses. Not at all try the search-engine:  http//www.google.de   Type in: hercules-motorrad, and you will find many further information etc. I have already my Hercules 50ccm-bike of 1976. Greetings to all owners in the world, in the hope that I could help you. With kind regards:Horst -- Horst.Guss at t-online.de

Hello,
I have just purchased a Hercules moped with a Sachs motor, and I am having trouble finding out any information about it. ( The last owner didn't know anything about it either). How do I find out what year it is, or the engine size or whether it is compliant with local laws and regulations???  Is there a specific location of a serial number?  (I can't locate it ) Is the engine marked in any way as to tell me the size?  If any one can help please email me at tiazimon at exciteimg  Thank you for your help.

Hello,
I wonder, if you could help us with our Problem. My Son has got a small Motorbike, which is driving slowly for kids aged 15. The name of it is Herkules, Prima 4, but there is a piston from the Spanish Firm Autisa inside, with 2 little metal rings around. One of them is broken, but we have no chance to by such a ring here in Germany. The diameter is 4,25cm. Please, if you can help us, send us 2 of this rings, so we're able, to repair it again. Or you may know somebody, who has got them and will sell it to us. Of course we pay for it. Many thanks for your work about us and sorry the bad English.

I found your site and fellow Hercules owners after someone turned me onto the Google.com search engine. I was amazed to find Hercules owners in the US...I was beginning to think I was the only one. If I could return the favor I'd like to point out "dictionary.com"

I've had to send e-mails to guys in Germany and Holland. Their English isn't that good my German is worse. Dictionary.com has an area that will TRANSLATE your text...and it works! I can translate my e-mails into German before I send them. And it will translate German (as well as French and Spanish) into English. Perhaps if you could post this to your site it might help with the flow of information.

Cheers,

The frame and leading link front forks are in excellent shape, the engine has been completely dismantled and has been seized at some point in its past.

Sachs 250mx.jpg
Sachs 250mx

December 15, 1998
Sachs produced a large number of 7 speed enduro bikes in the mid to late 1970s sold under the Hercules name in the U.S.
I have had the priviledge to own several of these since 1980. I have many hundreds of hours of trouble free off roading, including some motocross use, on my first Hercules 250. I still have three of them at this time.

A little known fact is that Sachs built a small number of motocross models based on the 7 speed engine, but with a 5 speed gearbox instead. These were made in very small quantities and sold under the Sachs name in late 1978 to early 1979. They have a little over 10" of suspension travel front and rear. The color was blue with a silver frame. Sachs saw fit to equip them with a floating rear brake, light weight frame, and a large still air box which are some of the differences that set them apart from the enduro models. As a matter of fact, the motocross bike is an entirely different bike.

After a fifteen year search, I was finally able to find one for sale.  It was from a wrecking yard and in pretty bad shape, but most of the major components are there. I would very much like to talk with someone who owns or has owned one. I am looking for a source of parts, new or used. Attached is a picture of a piece of dealer sales literature for them.

Mark Correll
