This 1964 DKW Hummel is a masterclass in ’60s era, futuristic design. It’s powered by a 50cc 2-stroke engine, has drum brakes front and rear, an integrated fuel tank/head light, a very interesting front fork assembly and more style than Cary Grant holding a martini, standing on top of a moving train.
This Hummel sold at the recent MidAmerica Auction in Las Vegas for $12,000, you can check out the auction page here.
