Wanderer motorcycle 3 hp, 1905

After the Wanderer factory had launched its first motorcycle in 1902, this model was developed and improved at short intervals.

The new model was characterised by a modern engine with vertical valves at the sides, actuated by cams, and a stable frame, optionally with springs on the front fork.
