A Brief History of the Marque
Founded by Jan Machek in 1910, the Ogar company produced accessories for the bicycle and automotive industries. Their first motorcycle appeared in 1934, a 250 cc with two-speed gearbox and bore and stroke of 68 x 68 mm.
In late 1935 the company introduced the Autfit OGAR-4, another 250cc machine but with four-speed transmission. 1938 saw the introduction of the 3-speed 250cc Elan. The engine on this model remained much the same as earlier versions, and it was housed in a square-section tubular frame with pressed-metal forks. Around 350 of these were produced.
A Sachs-powered 125 was offered in early 1940 with foot-change and moulded pressed-metal forks.
During the war the company quietly developed their designs and in 1946 their first post-war production model arrived using the same 250cc engine but with telescopic forks and better electrics. The same year they build a competition OHC model designed by Vincent Sklenar.
Following the nationalisation of the company by the Soviets, a Jawa-based model 350/12 was released.
