RETRO CLASSICS® STUTTGART to show historic motorcycles: AMSC special show „Motorcycles and sidecars“ / Museum Mile with Zündapp-Museum

In the history of modern individual transport, the two-wheeler has played a leading role: The running machine invented by Baron Karl von Drais in 1817 caused a sensation when he covered a "four-hour postal route" in only one hour. In 1885, Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach developed the petrol-driven "riding car", and during the leap in motorisation in the fifties, the motorcycle for the average consumer was often the only option for getting from A to B quickly with a mobile undercarriage. As the world's largest trade fair for driving culture, RETRO CLASSICS® in Stuttgart therefore traditionally focuses on classic two-wheelers.

The special show "Motorcycles and sidecars" organised by the Allgemeiner Motorradsport-Club Leonberg e.V. (a Leonberg-based motorcycle racing club), for example, is dedicated to a special theme which has always been firmly rooted - beside its importance for military use and in everyday life - in racing sport (Hall 8, Stand no. B10). Around 20 vehicles from different periods will be on show, from very old machines from the early days of sidecar racing to the current Formula 1 combination. Among the exhibits, there will also be a BMW R51/3 with Stoye sidecar from 1953. This model, which was already presented in February 1951 at the Amsterdam Salon, has an engine with a central camshaft, which back then was a completely new feature.

Visitors can immerse themselves even more in motorcycle history on the Museum Mile, where famous automobile and technology museums – including the Sigmaringen Zündapp-Museum – will present themselves with interesting and rare exhibits from their collections (East Entrance). For many decades, the popular vehicles from the "Zünder-Apparatebau-Gesellschaft m.b.H.", founded in 1917, dominated the roads in Germany, and today they are collected, restored and driven by fans around the world.
