"The first Stock, a 119cc two-stroke, was made under Evans licence. Entirely new Heuss-designed 173cc, 198cc, 246cc and 298cc models appeared in 1929. Of advanced design with own unit-design three-port two-stroke engines, shaft drive to the rear wheel and double loop frames." – Tragatsch.
Stock motorcycles were manufactured by Stock Motorpflug AG, commencing in 1924 at a factory in Berlin-Niederschöneweide. Already a producer of farm machinery, Stock formed part of the business empire belonging to Richard Kahn. Stock's first designs were lightweights based on models produced by the recently defunct Evans Motor Cycle Company in the USA, and this 119cc machine would continue in production until 1928. Designed by engineer Josef Heuss, an entirely new model was launched that year: the Stock Kardan (shaft) which, as its name suggests, featured shaft drive. Production shifted to another of Kahn's plants soon afterwards; of Jewish descent, Kahn left Stock in 1931 and his erstwhile company folded in 1933 having produced around 30,000 motorcycles.
