Friday bike

I was looking at some old adverts and came across a brand I'd never heard of before.

I thought that Manurhin might have been one of the many Japanese brand that existed in the 50s, but it turns out they were a French armaments company. They built the DKW Hobby scooter under licence, then when DKW ceased production, built their own version. 

There's a Web group, and the badge shows the origin of the design.

Note the four rings behind the word 'scooter'. This is the badge of Auto Union, a group that consisted of DKW, Horch, Wanderer, and Audi, who still use the logo.
