Goggo scooters (as well as Goggomobil cars) were built by GLAS, a company founded by Andreas Glas who started by making farm equipment and was inspired to build a scooter when he saw an Italian two-wheeler in Verona, Italy at a machinery exhibition. Approximately 46,000 units were built over a decade of production, with displacement options that included 100cc, 125cc, 150cc, and 200cc. Here’s one of the big ones.
The 200 (actually 197cc) motor was a two-stroke JLO single that produced 9.5 horsepower and was paired with a 4-speed transmission. Top speed was approximately 60 miles per hour. For more information on the Goggo, check out this site called “confessions of a 40 year Goggo owner” – if you scroll down you’ll see this exact scooter referred to as having been recently imported by Hansjorg Strube.
The seller notes the same thing, saying that this bike was restored in Germany before Mr. Strube imported it. It was recently serviced by 2nd Avenue Scooters of Phoenix, Arizona and is claimed to run well, though true mileage is unknown.
