A German test

This is a test of the MB250 conducted on its release by Peter Peregrin, and published in the German magazine "Auto- und Motorradwelt" in February 1954.

I don't know anything about Herr Peregrin.  He was certainly impressed with the motorcycle, but whether this was because of the machine's inherent excellence or because (as I suspect) he had an association with the factory is hard to tell.

The translation was done by my wife, Anna Solomun, who was (appropriately enough!) born not far from the Adler works in Frankfurt.  The flowery nature of the prose has been edited a little to make it tolerable to modern readers, but some of the syntax is still inescapably German......

I have replaced the German technical data sheet with that from the English-language version of the owner's manual.

The original German version of the test can be found on Michael's excellent Adler site.
