Scoot on with the Venus of Germany

Still in context with the subject of discussion about the vintage scooters. Might be You ever see and know the fantasy poster of 'Scoot on over to Venusby Aaron Johnson, Joel Anderson, in 2018 which appeared in the 1950s vintage nuanced style. It can be seen as if the poster invites us to scoot to outer space. Whether it's a coincidence or not (but there seems to be nothing to do with it).🤔 It turns out that in Germany in the 1950s there was a scooter with the Venus brand.

Like the others in the time, this brand also inspired by the success of selling scooters from Italy such as Vespa and Lambretta, as well as several other German major brands, such as the DKW Hobby, Heinkel Tourist, Zundapp Bella, Maico Mobil, Glass Gogo, Bastert Einspurauto, and others.

The scooter models made by a German manufacturer named Venus GmbH. Fahrzeugbau. As quoted from Cybermotorcycle, the first model is named Venus DS 100 which uses a 100cc 2 stroke single-cylinder Fichtel & Sachs engine. The design influence of the Italian Vespa Faro Basso scooter which was booming at that time is could be seen clearly in it, such as the rounded front fenders which look like separated from the shield, then the curved-back resembled a wasp's tail.

In our opinion, the overall design of this scooter is more similar to another German scooter model named the IWL SR59 Berlin. Although have an almost similar shape, but the Venus scooter model has a simpler front shield than the IWL model

The next model is the Venus MS 150 which uses a larger capacity engine, namely 150cc which able to spew power of up to 6.5 PS and is capable of making the scooter to a top speed of 70 kph. While the last model is known as the Venus MS and MSA 175 which uses a 175cc engine powered up to 9 PS so that it can carry this scooter to run up to 90 kph.

There is a slight difference from the previous scooter model if the DS 100 model is only equipped with one seat but on the next Venus scooter models, the company is also made with a longer seat so that can accommodate 2 people on it.

However, all of the Venus scooter models put the headlight on the shield so made it a real differentiating factor from those Italian scooters. Reportedly the machine was stodgy but reliable, and handling may not have been optimal.😔

This Donauwörth-based scooter manufacturer is produced all of the above scooter models in a fairly short period of time, less than 5 years around 1950 to 1955.😢😢😢
