Henrik Schweitzer of Budapest was one of many smallscale manufacturers producing motorcycles, before the Second World War, with the use of the successful Sachs proprietary engine of Germany.
The SHB-Motorett was considered old fashioned, when compared to contemporary popular moped models. Either engine of pedalling could be used, and two separate drive chains were maintained. The parallelogram front wheel suspension of the lightweight motorcycle adopted a single central helical spring, while the rear wheel remained unsprung.
The front wheel featured half-side drum brake, while the rear wheel adopted a back pedalling brake design, which was usual for bicycles at this time. Later models adopted an engine with a hand change 3-speed gearbox.
