Bitri "Nederlandse scooterfabriek nv."

VIn the 1950's Wim van der gang with then Delft University of technology student Leddy Koetsier, built a car with two Triumph engines. They were hoping to have a viable new product, but found a market was lacking. Wim van der Gang decided on producing the then popular motorscooter, they built several thousands of them from scratch. The whole factory line including hydraulic presses for the panels were designed and built by them.

These small and low powered scooters were even driven over the alps. Although it seems that crossing the Gross Glockner meant the passenger could not remain seated but had to walk. Pictures of this trip will be added later.
