 Rowan Bond         Mackay - Australia

MB 250, MB 250S
The 1955 MB250 was purchased new in 1956 by a German tourist from Mayfair Motorcycles in Melbourne.
About 1960 the bike was being ridden near Emerald in Queensland when it broke down. A local police sergeant came to the rescue and eventually the bike changed hands.
After a few years in a shed the bike was running again and used as a paddock bike until it finally stopped with gearbox troubles.
Rowan heard of the bike in 1982 where by that time it had found it`s way to Rockhampton.
The bike was stripped down and in 1995 it was entered in the `Wheels West` Rally in Perth WA.
Rowan met another Adler owner from Sydney and a deal was struck and Rowan had two more bikes.
The restored bike has completed in many Rallies.
It tours comfortably at 90-100km either solo or two up and has a top speed of almost 80 mph.
Rowan has done major work on the motor by using other brand parts and is the man to talk to if you have mechanical problems.
Rowan is trying to make up a RS250 and is looking for a swinging arm conversion.

 Socrates         Sydney - Australia

MB 250
I bought the bike 20 years ago but had not seen the bike for over 18 years as it was in Greece.
My father sent it back to me about a year and half ago.
The full story goes like this`...
When I was 16 I lived in Athens Greece.
I bought the bike from a gentleman who bought it from Germany.
He fell from the bike a couple of times and gave up riding it.
He kept it at his house but over the years some things were stolen, like the kick-starter, thumb-screws, etc.
The gentleman sold it to me in 1979.
I then began restoring the bike with my limited pocket money and I do mean pocket money!
I found an original ADLER kick-starter and my friend`s father made some of the screws that were missing.
After 8 months of Sunday work I had removed most of the rust and resprayed it [using cans of paint if you believe it].
I also bought some other components such as a speedo which was smashed and other electric and mechanical components [friction disks in front suspension)
I did not ride the bike except for a couple of times because I did not have a licence.
Shortly after I `restored` the bike I returned to Australia to study and stayed here since (I was born here in Sydney).
After many years I asked my father to send the bike to me, so now it is back with me waiting to be rescued from my early `restoration`.
I will try to do the bike justice and make it look as close to original as possible.
I have been saving pictures from restored ADLER M250`s to get the original look as a benchmark.
There is plenty of chrome work that needs restoration, a complete re-spray, find some missing bolts and repair a broken fin on the right cylinder.
I am not sure what state the engine is but when I got it working back then it seemed to be quite OK.
I did not find any more rust on the bike, since I last saw it, as it was inside in a dry environment.
The books that come with the bike show a couple of previous owners and details about the bike such as
serial numbers etc.

 Kerry Hill          Brisbane - Australia

MB 250
Kerry from Brisbane has a 1954 MB250 bought in 1991 at Brisbane.
Rough but in going condition.
The bike was restored by Kerry`s husband in mid 1990`s (now black with gold pinstriping and a single seat) and it was entered straight away in it`s first Qld Historical Road Racing Championships (Regulatory Trial).
Unfortunately it broke down and had to be pushed back to the pits.
Since then the bike has featured at these annual Championships plus events such as STAY Racing and BEARS Racing.
Kerry also attends historical rallies and ride days in SE Qld and northern NSW.
The bike also featured on the Bike Show some years back and for some years was STAY Racing`s Lap Record Holder (Regulatory up to 500cc).
It has also won a few Concourse awards

 Ralph Roles          Brisbane - Australia

MB 250, MB 250S
Started motorcycling on a BSA Bantam 125 and graduated to a Bantam 150.
Most motorcyclists of the era had a Bantam at some time.
The 125 was a bit slow as todays joggers would go past.
He fell in love with the Adler as he didnt want one of those big British Twins (bodgie bikes) that everyone rode in the 50`s.
Scooters were also in favour and the Vespa and Lambretta were very common in Brisbane.
Ralph almost bought a Daimler Puch as Adlers were expensive (new) and were out of most peoples price range.
One saturday morning he passed the BP Garage on Kingsford Smith Drive near Breakfast Ck and saw an Adler for sale for 80 Pounds.
It didnt run too well but could`nt be resisted and this became his first Adler.
Eventually like for all motorcyclists of the era the bike was replaced by a car (Ford Anglier) to improve his social life.
Many Adler gearbox/motors were used in Go Karts which were popular at the time.
In the late 70`s Ralph started looking for an Adler again and while at a vintage motorcycle meeting at Lakeside saw a beautiful restored Adler on display.
It was his old bike but the owner would not part with it.
However the present owner had other Adlers and Ralph bought one that resided in a chook shed.
A few weeks later a partly restored MB 250S appeared in the newspaper for sale so then Ralph had two bikes.
Ralph is to retire this year and will then be devoting time to his bikes.
He was watching the bike show on SBS TV one night which featured a Adler owned by a lady rider (still has the recorded tape).
This was a black MB250 with a solo seat and belonged to Kerry of Brisbane.
As Ralph says Adlers are out there but very hard to find.
