1930 Opel Motoclub

1930 Opel Motoclub


This 1930 Opel Motorclub is a pre-World War II gem. It spent the war in a woodpile in Czechoslovakia. In 2013 this very rare SS (Super Sport) underwent a complete restoration.

Although 1500 were produced it is believed that fewer than 20 of this Super Sport model have survived. The gas gauge mounted on top of the fuel tank was very rare and ahead of its time. The colorcoordinated upholstery and tires distinguish this Motoclub and its nickname the "Silver Redbird".

It is powered by a single cylinder, 500-cc engine and is coupled to a three-speed transmission. 

The Motoclub was produced in small numbers between 1928 and 1931, and it was marketed as a high-performance touring bike for the discerning buyer who valued quality and style. The bike's success helped to establish Opel as a manufacturer of motorcycles as well as cars, and it paved the way for future Opel motorcycles, such as the Olympia.
