Originally a bicycle manufacturer, Victoria produced motorcycles from about 1901 to 1966. One of their most well known models was the Victoria Bergmeister, as it was well-engineered. Unfortunately, the excellent design was very expensive to produce, and Victoria ran out of money after only 3 years of selling this bike. In ’58 they merged with another group.

The 350cc twin makes me think of a German copy of the Moto Guzzi engine, though it’s actually at 80 degrees – the engine produces 21 horsepower with a chain primary drive to the gearbox and shaft drive to the rear wheel. It’s claimed that only about 5,000 were made, and about 60 survive worldwide.

This specific Victoria Bergmeister has 4,100 miles and looks great in its Halloween paint scheme – the orange turn handlebar turn signals become a nice color-matching accent when not in use. In many ways, it reminds me of a BMW R51/3.
