Wanderer motor cycles were manufactured in the German town of Chemnitz between 1902 and 1929.
The Wanderer company also built high-quality bicycles, typewriters, mechanical calculators and cars.
In the early twenties the firm employed more than 6000 labourers.
Wanderer motorcycles had an excellent reputation; they were sturdily built and their finish was first class.
Between 1914 and 1918 the German army used many Wanderers.
This 1914 model is one of those army machines.
It is remarkably well preserved and turned up in France.
Note the sprung rear frame, quite advanced in 1914!
A rare survivor, a gem for the enthusiast who likes to preserve a machine in its original guise.
