The founder of the company, Joe Merkel, began designing engines for motorcycles in 1902, and built his own motorcycles beginning in 1903, including a one- cylinder engine with a capacity of 316 cc, which was also used in the contemporary Indian. In 1908 he set up a company under the name of Light Manufacturing and Foundry Company in Pottstown, Pennsylvania. His motorcycles displayed the trademark “Merkel Light” on the tank. In 1910 he offered the first two-cylinder engine. In 1911 the company was taken over by Miami Cycle and Manufacturing Company of Middletown, Ohio. Subsequently the trademark was changed to “Flying Merkel”, and a bright and shiny orange paint was used, which was later described as “Merkel orange”
