Condor, based in Courfaivre, was together with Motosacoche  the leading motorcycle manufacturer of Switzerland.. 
The company started making bicycles in 1893. Founders were Eduard and Jules Scheffer. 
Responsible for the motorcycle side of the company was
Otto Fricker, who became the son in law of  Eduard Scheffer. 
Fricker  produced  his first motorcycle in 1901. Condor used a number of different engines: in the beginning mainly Zedel, Motosacoche and Moser and later also Villiers.
In the later twenties and early thirties Condor was a very active competitor in races and many successes were recorded.
After world war two Condor built mainly machines for the Swiss army; the 578 cc and later the 750 cc  side valve transverse twin with shaft drive were well known machines.
This machine is equipped with Bosch lighting set and is an older restoration.
