FRAMO / GERMANY

The German FRAMO Werke GmbH were founded by J.S. Rasmussen who became famous for the DKW 2 stroke engines. Nevertheless this company never belonged to the AUTO UNION combine.
In 1923 the FRAMO started with a three wheeler called PICCOLO that had the engine mounted on the front wheel.
To my knowledge this car had no emblem.
In 1933 the STROMER was presented, also a three wheeler, but with two driven front wheels.
Just 737  FRAMO STROMER were sold so you have to look years for an emblem.
The FRAMO works were nationalized in 1945 and had since produced light commercial vehicles.
