The KTM Ponny

Stumbled across this interesting piece on excellent Retrorambling blog, about the KTM Ponny… regular readers may remember this was a “mystery scooter” featured on the blog a while back, here: http://wp.me/p3rSaF-bWvSs Anyway, this adds a little bit more info if you were taken by these unusual little scoots!

TM sold out its share for the first time in 1955 to a businessman named, Ernst Kronreif and result he bought the major part of the company. As as result, the consortium was renamed to Kronreif & Trunkenpolz Mattighofen. In 1957, KTM launched its very first moped, the Mecky. Followed by Ponny in 1960 and Ponny II in 1962. Meanwhile, KTM also molded bikes for racing. Unfortunately, the major stake holder, Kronreif died in 1960 and so the founder of KTM, Trunkenploz in 1962.
