Lot Details
1953 Adler M250
Adler was yet another German company to jump back into production after WWII, producing a line of highly regarded twin-cylinder two-strokes. Billed as Germany's "finest and fastest 250," Adler was proud of the bike's reliability and handling, too, traits demonstrated by multiple gold medals in the International Six Days Trial and repeat 250-class wins at the 24 Hour Race in Warsage, Belgium – more impressively, Adlers finished second overall there both years. The M250 on offer here also gets regular exercise, most recently participating in the 2012 Pebble Beach Tour d'Elegance, after which it scored an impressive 99 points in the event's judged concours.
