Yes, it is German Andy.
Slaintedan, it surely looks a lot like this Adler, but it is older and smaller in capacity.

Here is another picture from a different angle. This moped took part in the Athens Classic Rally last week, the poor guy was out of time from the first stage, but didn't give up!
I had neever seen such a bike so I asked the owner for info. Then I searched the net and I could find only one site with a picture, and the bike doesn't have the girder fork like tis example.
BTW I came 2nd in the +35hp category on my R75 at the rally :)

Andy, these Express mopeds are very nice, there is also a man's and lady's model as I saw!
It's not the same machine though, but you got the engine manufacturer right. The capacity is smaller though.
You can see that the cylinder shape and badging are different.
OK here are some serious hints for you guys ;)
It's a 50cc and it is a late 20s model.

I found it !! :D

It is a Göricke. The link you mentioned (Model 1928) must be a newer model then the one you took a picture of.



Link source to more pictures:

http://www.motosantigas.com.br/galeria/goricke 50cc 1928 elisabete.htm

There is very little information on this company. Looks like they were a very famous bicycle maker. From what I can tell they were way ahead of their time and many other manufacturers copied them. I found many mopeds that were made 20 years later that looked identical.

Next time Aris could you make it a little more difficult. ;)

Andy I'm afraid this is as hard as it can get :p

You are right, it is the Goricke moped, with the Sachs 50cc engine and it seems that the Elisabette shown in the link is a little more recent than 'our' moped as it doeasn't use a girder fork.
I wasn't expecting this one to be found, but it seems you looked one by one all the makes using Sachs engines until you got it. This is what I would call 'extremely systematic aproach' :D

Here is another picture I took. It's a close up from the left side of the engine, with the Goricke badge clearly visible.

Note that the 'o' in 'Goricke' is with the double dots on top which change the pronounciation in German. Maybe this confused the search engines a bit ;)

As you understand, I couldn't post it until now.
