The cantilever framed Riedel "Imme" ("German light motorcycle," or "scooter") was designed by Norbert Riedel, and used the exhaust as a pivoting, single-sided swing-arm. The Riedel scooter used a single-sided parallelogram front fork. The R100's 99cc engine produced 4.5 HP. There were approximately 12,000 units produced, and the original standard color was oxide-red. Between 1953 and 1956 Große Riedel AG built a 175cc Imme version called the "Große," or "Large One."
