A bicycle manufacturer founded in 1867, Dürkopp had not built a powered two-wheeler for 35 years when it resumed motorcycle production in 1949. Five years later Dürkopp cashed in on the post-war scooter boom, introducing the Diana, a model clearly influenced by the Lambretta LD but equipped with a larger (194cc) engine. The Diana was an immense success for the small German company with almost 25,000 of the two-seater version being produced. Sold new via King's Motors (Oxford) Ltd and a must for any serious scooter collector, this example has been off the road in barn storage since 1964 and is offered for restoration. Sold strictly as viewed, the machine comes with its original old-style logbook (listing only two private owners) and is offered without reserve.

For Motor Cars and Motorcycles a 15% Buyer's Premium is payable on the first £50,000 of the final Hammer Price of each Lot, and 12% on any amount by which the Hammer Price exceeds £50,000. VAT at the standard rate is payable on the Premium by all Buyers, unless otherwise stated.

Some lots may be subject to VAT on the Hammer Price. These lots will be clearly marked with the relevant symbol printed beside the lot number in the catalogue.
