1956 DEMM – VESTING 48 CORSA

Frame no.: *10683*

Engine no.: *06257*

Vesting was a historic brand of bicycles and mopeds in the Netherlands. The founder of this Haarlem bicycle factory was Otto Dik. The mopeds he produced were somewhat special because in some case they had double shock absorbers on the rear fork, a set of which was attached to the passenger seat. They were equipped with a HMW 50 N two-stroke engine in a Paperino frame. The Galletti moped scooter was also sold under the name Vesting.  The Vesting Corsa 1956 had a 49cc Demm engine block.
