Ideal Sidecars

A Brief History of the Marque

This small sidecar manufacturer set up shop in Berlin-Weissensee in 1922 as a division of P. Räbel GmbH which sold Mars motorcycles. They were typical of the era, perched high on the chassis with a door on the right and rudimentary leaf-spring suspension.
