1964 DKW HUMMEL 115 For Sale

In the 1960s, conventional design was being challenged.

The German-manufactured DKW joined the “Swinging ‘60s” party, when its commuter-designed moped Hummel, which had been around since 1956, was reinvented with futuristic body panels and a large cowling over the engine. “Hummel” is the German word for bumblebee.
