ABOUT

OUR STORY

I'm the great grand nephew of Joseph Merkel (pictured here on the right after one of his cylces won the 1910 FAM championship race), and for as long as I can remember the Flying Merkel brand has been a source of pride in our family. For us it is more than just an amazing piece of Americana - it is a part of our family history, and part of what has made motorcycling, motorcycling! We've taken that pride a step further, and have fought for the rights to own this brand and shepherd it into the future. We are extremely proud to finally call ourselves Flying Merkel!
