Default Interesting bike at german motorshow

I took some pics of this interesting bike at a motorshow here in northgermany this weekend, unfortunately my wife felt a bit bored and pulled me away from it, so I couldn't figure out what it was, but the design is extremely nice...

Axel,
Have to love the ladies logic. They want you to go shopping with them for three hours but get upset when you spend fifteen minutes looking at a motorcycle.

Thank you for a look at a wonderful motorcycle. It would be a fun bike to build.

Steve.

Very nice old bike there! It looks like a board track racer, an earlier one when they were experimenting with shaving off the cylinder cooling fins to save weight. I also noticed it has a manual oil pump.

The rear wheel pulley reminds me of a clothes dryer drum that has been cut and re-purposed.

A magnified view shows what appears to be the name Kuchen on the crankcase. Given the style of the tank, I wonder if it's a Neumann-Neander design.

Edit: info states he only started making bikes in 1924, and this is much earlier.

It’s a racer, a twin, but it still has battery/coil ignition...

I’d date it to appox 1907-1912... ?
