This Foundation was established on 5 February 2013 to preserve the legacy and technical heritage of the German constructors Friedel Münch and Helmut Fath including the others who collaborated in their achievements. The Foundation undertakes a world-wide research into the history of these two constructors, including regular visits so-called ‘time witnesses’, such as former employees who are still alive. A substantial amount of valuable information is uncovered by form inquiry. One of the aims of the Foundation is to collect relevant, drawings, photographs/images, and even audio recordings. The digital archive of the Münch by Meesters Foundation can be considered as one of the largest in its kind, containing thousands of pictures and documents regarding Münch, Fath and Clymer’s history. It also contains hundreds of originals, and reproductions, of drawings from the archives of Friedel Münch, Helmut Fath, Peter Kuhn and Hans H. Hartman. On request, this material can be made available for the purpose of restoration of Münch and URS motorcycles. With the help of this information, several motorcycles have already been restored to their original form. The intention is to have information on every Münch that left the factory. We have a comprehensive archive, but new information is more than welcome. To keep the history of both constructors alive, an article is featured in a magazine is every year. The main driving force behind the foundation is Erik Meesters. At the age of 11 he saw his first Münch motorcycle and his fascination for this marque continues to this day. The years of journalistic research and the gathering of much material has resulted in establishing the foundation Münch by Meesters.
