Yep, a guy...or group of engineers came up with a little two-stroke motor that got 100 mpg that was simple to maintain during a time of fuel shortage. Some things are just so good there's no need to change the concept. People like 'Puckett' came along and made them roar. Dave Hennessey came along and made people start to realize there was history to be found in these little bikes. He validated Dean Hummer's understanding that young people learning on a friendly motorcycle could be introduced to future adventures on larger bikes and build lives filled with wonderful memories....and wonderful people. Yes, it started with DKW and hasn't ended yet!

I read that these are all derivatives of the DKW

Polish 1947 SHL RT125
Czech 1949 Jawa 125
1955 Kawasaki (Meihatsu) 125
Italian 1950 MiVal 125T
German 1941 NSU 125 ZBD
Hungarian Csepel 125

Who knows if that is correct. Some of the engines look to me to be more
like the DKW than others.
