1961 DKW SUPER Hummel

Enter the 1956 DKW Hummel ("Bumblebee"). With a sleek, science-fiction shape and well-placed brightwork, it was a definite step up from the humble moped. Its stamped-steel frame was gracefully sculpted, the engine sat concealed under a stylish shroud, and the fuel tank hid beneath the back of the extravagant headlight pod. (Click image to enlarge)

Underneath, the Hummel was all practicality. A 49cc two-stroke single and four-speed transmission sent five small horses to the rear wheel via an enclosed chain. With a little help from a following wind, it might have attained 50 mph.
