Barkas was established in 1923 in Frankenberg engineer J. Rasmussen and his two colleagues, they also founded Metall-Werke Frankenberg GmbH company. This melting factory supplied spare parts and accessories for motorcycles. This means that DKW, transport, single-cylinder two-stroke engine United the advantages of truck and motorcycle. The idea was decent, now became available and were popular among the traders and artisans.
In 1934 the firm moved to Heinichen and FRAMO-Werke GmbH began to be called. In 1953 works on development of new model began, and ended in 1961 with release of the latest Barkas. The car cardinally differs from the predecessor. It was a modern design — with fresh design, a cabin over the engine, the forward drive, an independent torsion suspension bracket of all wheels. Even the three-cylinder two-stroke engine nearly 1 liter and forty three horsepowers which conducted the family tree from pre-war DKW, didn't become an anachronism yet. In thirty years of production made hundred seventy five thousand seven hundred forty B1000 cars. For the enterprises serious modernization interfered because of the Soviet system. The car was released practically what it and I was, those changes which were necessary for delivery to the markets were only used: that is the modernized lighting engineering, double-circuit brakes with the diagonal drive, chiseled to nine hundred ninety one cubic centimeters, the engine, speeding up to forty six horsepowers, the additional cooling system. In 1988 slightly refreshed appearance. By the end 1980kh Barkas became outdated. And no slips and cosmetics rescued. In 1989 on cars of the last party started installing the license four-cycle engine Volkswagen in fifty eight horsepowers.1 - 19
