Hoffman Vespa?

Around 63 years ago, the scooter boom began around the corner in Germany. Almost 50km from the Scooter Center removed the first Vespa scooters were built under license at the Hoffmann works in Lintorf.

This is how the Vespa came to Germany.

As the loser countries of the Second World War, Italy and Germany were subject to the strict ban on the exchange of industrial goods. The Vespa was a best seller in Italy and the Italians were looking for a way to bypass the prohibited goods traffic. So Piaggio sold licenses to manufacture and sell the Vespa. In Germany, Hoffmann Werke received this license and built 1950 Hoffmann Vespa from 1954 to 40.000.

You can find more information about the Hoffmann Vespa at Mike Hahn, a specialist in Hoffmann Vespa and author / co-author of various books, among others together with Robin Davy.
