Hello all! I've recently come into a couple of Zundapp Super Sabres (plus some extra scraps) which I'm currently restoring. One is a '57 with the scrambler kit, and the other is a stock '60. If anyone has any parts/manuals I might be interested in please let me know. Also, if anybody knows how to refurbish an MLZn stator or knows a modern replacement for the original clutch discs, shoot me an email.

Interesting and informative site. Hi, I am building a Norton 99 Special, but using a 4 cylinder engine Hillman Imp and I was looking up braking mods it was suggested on a Vincent site, that the brake friction material containing bronze used by Zundapp was very good at increasing brake efficiency, is this material still available and if so from where can it be obtained?

After examining my "new" 1953 KS 601 Sport, my mechanic and I have several questions and parts needs. Does the air filter have a gasket between the filter & the airbox? What brand(s) and number of spark plug are best? What is good compression on these engines? What holds the kick start arm IN? Ours trys to leave the bike. Do the pet cocks have ONE or TWO lever stop position plates? We need some suggestions for parts vendors (hopefully in the USA). Parts needed at this time: Drive shaft boots, front & rear. Oil pan gasket. Pet cock re-build kits. Valve cover gaskets. Gas tank rubber isolators for front and rear mounts. Kick start outer seal. Left side rear axle seal. Transmission rear mount rubber. Grateful for help! Russ

G'Day Ben, Love looking at all yer info & pictures. I have been given a Zundapp Bella in return for helping out a friend whose car died, so I gave him mine while I rest up from heart surgery. This Bella will probably take up up a good few years of my life restoring her, but I'm more than happy to take it on. There are a few parts missing as you would guess with a 1953 machine, but I will endeavour to get it back to it's original look. I will send some photos soon. Regards, Jock in SA

While cleaning out some old files I found a CA pink slip for a 1956 250SU that was stolen from me in Sacramento in 1978 or 9. It was signed by the seller but never transferred (stolen before I could get it running) Anyone who collects this historical stuff, let me know and I'll mail it. This isn't a trick. I don't care what happened to the bike, I just know people collect this stuff.

I have a 1953 ks601 with 259 miles on it the bike has not ran in 60 years I pulled the pan and cleaned the old oil out and washed the brass filter I took a oil can with a rubber hose and pushed oil up the filter tube until oil started purging out from the engine. I put it all back together with new oil I started the bike and let it idle for a few min and I still have no oil coming out the rocker arms. how do you prime the oil pump so it picks up the oil. I don't want to run it. does it have a oil port to put a oil gauge on it. cell # 440-813-2812.

Jan. 27, 2016 23:21 Hello, I am restoring a KS601 (52 or 53)till some years. My bigger problem, now - and it's a real problem - is to find an engine. In fact, I thought it was possible to restore mine, but when I have opened it, I found inside a total destruction; such a destruction that I think it's not possible to repare it. Everything is broken or corroded and it would cost more than the price of the bike to restore it. So, I think the only thing to do is to buy another engine in a relative good quality. The problem, of course, is to find it!!! Help, help!!! walter.desert@base.be

Hi there. I recently acquired a 1955 Zundapp Comfort motorcycle that seems to be complete except for the headlight bezel, grips, throttle cable and the rear rack or rear seat. I have not been able to find any information anywhere on the internet regarding this year and model and am hoping you might be able to give give me some information or send me in the right direction. I haven't yet decided if I should restore it to it's original condition or leave it as is and polish it up. I can send you some pictures if it would be helpful. I LOVE your site. The array of bikes you have out here is truly amazing! Thank you for any help you're able to give. Shelly

When I was a teenager in the 1960's, I had a 1955 Zundapp 250 that my uncle gave me. The manual that came with it mentioned Elastic and Sabre, so I don't know which it was. After I went to college, my father gave it away. He wanted more garage space. So, I'm asking if you or any of your readers would have a bike like this for sale, for a (very) reasonable amount. I miss that bike a lot, and I'd love to have another one.My uncle and the guy he got it from couldn't get it to run. I took the whole engine apart, put it back together, and got it going.

Will be needing one of those. My plans are to restore it but might consider selling for the right offer. I have the german customs manifest showing the bike being exported to the USA in 1965. The family's father/mother owned the bike from the mid-1950's. I purchased it from the son.

Hello, I'm the one with the Elastic on eBay. It turns out there was an entire box of parts that I did not photograph for the original ad. So I took some pix and updated the ad. The cylinders, some electronics, and other engine parts are shown. Still no fenders, handlebars, or headlight assembly though. Also, there is a better picture of the data plate. It is VIN# 555234. To view my ad on eBay, please go to the eBay website at eBay.com and enter item number 321216492991 in the search box at the top of the eBay home page.

Q. Dear James, A follow up contact. Currently a '57 KS 601 Elastic is on ebay USA. Have you seen it? I may bid to win, but if you have an opinion on getting the remaining parts it needs etc I'd appreciate it. ie no front guard may be a vital as also the ignition and electrics. Any idea what it's really worth as I need to allow another 2grand to get it here in Brisbane? Hope you can help and that all is good with your own wonderful Elastic. Regards, Ken

Thanks for the info on this site. It even has a spare parts manual for my bike, a 1954 250 Elastic. Similar to the 250 Sabre I believe? Does anyone know what happened to all the Zündapp parts at Domiracer? They had a great range of spares, it would be a shame for them to disappear. Cheers, John.

Comment: thank you for this site. Great to have all this info in one place. Question: I have what I believe is a 1955 Norma Luxus db234. However - every site I see has the single seat with the rack over the rear fender. Mine looks just like that with the exception of two things: 1) it has a buddy seat that extends over the rear fender and bolts to a piece of metal that comes from shock and up and over the fender, and 2) it has more curved handle bars than straight like the pictures i see online. Can someone tell me if there was an option to have the buddy seat in 1955 and different handlebars? I like the single seat and will remove the one I have if it isn't original but don't want to change it up if it came like this in 1955. Maybe this was just a rare option. Thanks.

[Bob, it isn't ever a good idea to post your phone number on an open forum. Send me some photos to n2deep@zundappfool.com and I will see if I can identify it for you. 1972 is normally out of my range of study.]

There is a lot of good stuff going on your website fool. Thank you for being here when there is no one else to represent these machines. I have recently acquired 1952 Zundapp KS 601 frame with front and rear suspension, that came with a few boxes of other parts, from a motorcycle junk yard. Believe it or not, the frame is very well preserved and the front end looks marvelous. I would really like to restore this "Beast", and enjoy, but parts are really hard to find. You seem to be one of only three people I can find on the net, two of them are Germany. I look for parts daily to see what you have on hand, and look forward to a few transactions in the future.

It's nice to see some Zundapp stuff. My first and second bikes were 1952 and 1953 Zundapp Comfort 200's (already pretty worn out when I got them). Finding parts in those days (early 1960s) was next to impossible. A 16 year old kid dealing with "Berliner"..... Nonetheless, great memories are evoked from your site. Thanks! Jay

The photo of the KS 175 on your page is actually a 50cc - KS 50; 1968;1969;1970 . I had one, the headfins radiated around the head,the physical outside was bigger than a Yamaha 180 cc of 70's. It did a true speed of 72mph (gatsometer),lying down on the tank. A golden badge was on the steering ,stating that it held 8 world speed land records for 50 cc's . Mine had a chrome barrel with pits(small holes)in it ,single ring, 5-speed ,19" front & 18" backwheel. The cost in South Africa in '69 was R320.00, Honda Fury & Susuki AS 50 cost R 240.00 ,That time $1 = R1 (today our money are worth nothing $1 = R10). A Zündapp KS 125 held its own against a Yamaha RD 350 in 1972. Regards, Hanko.

I used to own a 1965 ks50 when I was a 16 year old. Just looked at a video of a gentleman with exactly the same bike. brings back memories. I still have a small calender at home with different models on every page from those days. Maybe i should scan it en let your forum have it if you are interested. I still ride motorcycles. i do have a restored 1976 Suzuki gt750 which i love riding. In south Africa we only had the small two stroke model available. i so remember the last ones were watercooled models. Our big opposition those days were the Kreidlers and the DKW's, all very fast bikes. Happy riding and restoring to you all. Eugene

I've have some zundapp carb parts that came in a box of scooter parts I bought. Bing carb 18/17/4 and 18/17/3. They are the dual(duplex) style carbs. For a comfort or db200,elastic? The carbs are just bodys. No parts in them. Some other parts for the carbs in the box. 3 slides, floats, couple needles, Bango bolts etc. Not complete carbs but the carb bodys themselves are in excellent condition. I'd like to sell them. Email me for photos if you're interested. I don't know anything about zundapp. So I don't know much about the carbs. Just posting here if I could find them a home. Thanks Justin. In Chicagoland.

Hi James, I haven't spoke with you since mid-ohio 2 years ago. I just picked up a Combinette, mostly complete, but missing the motor, chainguard and exhaust. It's pretty cool, but I can't find much info as to year, etc. All I have to go on is the body styling and a number stamped on the frame (Z49397A). Any idea? Also, do you have any idea on where to find the remaining parts? Are you going to the Zundapp rally in September? I plan on being there with at least 2 KS601s, Bella, DB200, and this Combinette. It looks like fun! Paul from Perry Cycle

I am considering buying a 100% complete but unrestored 1957 Zundapp Bella R153. The body is straight but needs a lot of body work. The engine has good compression and appears complete.. The owner is asking $1600 - which seems high to me. I have restored 6 Vespas and Lambrettas but I have no experience with a Zundapp. I am a restorer not a collector so I sell every thing I restore. I do not lose money on my projects so I need some advice. What will this model sell for once it is restored correctly?? THANKS - GARY MENEGHIN 


Gary, it is never a good idea to post one's phone number on a guest book. Email addresses work much better and are much safer. Send us an email and we'll direct you to one of the better Bella experts in the US who can give you very specific information.

I traded it for a 650 BSA Golden Flash in1958 and sold it when I went overseas in the Airforce.I returned in 63 and bought a 61 Super Sabre and kept it till 1968 when I bought a brand new Kawasaki W2SS which I still have and ride.Last year I found a 63Super Sabre on E-Bay and won it.I had to do a little work on it but it runs pretty good.I need a original tail light for it to make it complete.Know where I could find one?

My very first motorcyle was a '57' Super Sabre purchased with paper route savings when I was 15 in 1958. It did not take me long to strip it down to it's very bones and convert it into one bad enduro machine. Soon there I was at the Jack Pine in Mi. deep in mud and sweat, me and my mad machine. I don't suppose I'll ever have another, but what fond memories we shared together. Where ever you are now old Super Sabre?!! I hope that you have been well cared for.

Hi Maybe I am crazy, but I have a Zundapp engine which my father purchased in the 1960's, to use for a go kart, it never eventuated, ........he passed away 15 + years back, and I have finally dug it out of the back shed, and am looking at finding the correct frame, etc to do a backward restoration. I am yet to find numbers to indentify the origin, but I think it was a DBK, I have limited knowledge of Zundapps, but had heard all about this engine right through my childhood. I have seen some ambitous restorations, and have owned / restored about 90 cars in my 48 years, so this is something different, and I look forward to the help of your resources to assist me,........ your website looks excellent. I would be grateful if you could help with ID once I have all the numbers. Kind Regards, Mark.

It seems we all share an affinity for Zundapp motorcycles, along with the difficulties of finding resources to restore them! I have just acquired a 1962 Zundapp Sport (50cc?)and am having a hard time figuring out what it is exactly. It is a motorcycle, yet does not get much cred on motorcycle sites so perhaps should be better classified as a moped/hybrid? Either way, I was just wondering if there was anyone in the SF Bay area who knew of Zundapp clubs? or parts dealers? It is missing a seat, along with part of the motor and other miscellaneous details so I have a long way to go. Anyone know much about early 60's sport models? Please let me know! *also I am realizing that if I only knew German this venture would be much easier!

I'm looking for someone to complete the restoration a 1954 Zundapp Comfort. I've rebuilt the engine, painted it and put it back together but need help with the rest - wiring, getting it to run etc. Anyone in George or Ohio do this type of restoration? If so, please get back to me. Thanks!

First pictures that I took could be seen at www.adprom.net/zundapp There is a one whole frame of Zundapp Combinette from 54/55 and a couple of Zundap?? engines. Other parts are hard to recognize, so if you could identify something, pls let me know. Parts are from period 30's-5's. There are 2 2gear hand gears for BSA .

When I lived in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico back in the mid 50's(1956 or 57), a friend bought a new, partially assembled Zundapp. It was shipped to him in a big wooden crate, I'm not sure from where but it could have been from Europe. He didn't feel comfortable assembling it so I volunteered. It went together quite smoothly. As I recall, it had a shaft drive which I was told by the owner was the first shaft drive motorcycle made. I'm not sure he was correct. I drove it around for a couple of days and it was a great moto. I have always wondered what happened to it. The owner was a professor at the University of PR in Mayaguez. Maybe it's still down there motring around.

Wow, sure was happy to find this site,my first motorcycle was a Zundapp and from teh pistures I just found, it was a Trophy Sabre. I couldn't remember the model until I saw some of the pictures but I vividly remember the details and that was what I found in them. I now ride a Harley Electra Glide but the time I spent on that old Zundapp will be in my mind forever! Hardly anyone around here has ever heard of Zundapp, much one ever saw one so I have enjoyed showing the pics around. Thanks for the memories!

we were zundapp dealers from 1950 to the bitter end, we never sold the big bikes, rather the 200 norma..comfort,,the sabre..challenger and super sabre. we sold a bunch of them and raced the super sabre..highly mofified. we also had a number of riders from our shop racing, the battles between our zundapps and the tiger cubs was epic. my super sabre had the head cut .250, a webco magneto, webco bottom end kit, a special manifold with a 1 3/16 amal tt carb, with remote float bowl, i cut the flywheel down to the mounting rivits, polished the ports, used a expansion chamber but later took it off and added a short rpm pipe (mistake) the bike was incredibility fast but lacked reliability, the connecting rods would sling in half. i am old but still have a soft spot in my heart for the zundapp. I AM ANOTHER ZUNDAPP FOOL!1

Good to see so many local KS601's. My guess is that there are six or seven running in the state of Michigan. My 1952 "running aboriginal" (original black except for front fender) 1952 KS601 is probably going to be looking for a good home in the next year or two. My surgeon (valve sparing upper aortic aneurism repair) says "do not push, pull, or lift more than 50lb." It is kind of difficult to ride a 550 lb KS601 under those restrictions, and "Daily Rider" should be ridden.


OK folks, Pay attention! Here is a 1952 KS601 that is looking for a new home. Unlike BMW's and Harleys, Zuendapps don't grow on trees!

My godfather Hanns Osten (deceased)told me that in his youth,1920's,he was friends with the nephew of the Zundapp owner.They would race each other on the new models,all around the German cuontryside. The owner would follow them in his chauffer driven limosine.One time the bikes overheated,so they pissed on the engines to cool them down.The nephew was ALWAYS supposed to win the race,but once Hanns beat him and the owner was furious.

I'm interested in selling my 1953 Zundapp Comfort 200. First, I'm not even sure what I should ask, so maybe you can give me an idea of what I should expect. It has been completely restored and looks like it belongs in a showroom. I could send photos if that will help. Secondly, can you suggested a good site to advertise it? I'm familiar with all the usual's like Craigslist, eBay, Auto Trader, etc. However, I was thinking their might be a better site to target people looking for classic motorcycles like mine.

Mufflers are a little rusty. Has wrong fenders installed but the originals come with it. I do not want to restore it but rather leave the patina alone and get it into running order. Where to find engine rebuild parts? I'm a BMW guy and don't know anything about Zundapps....Should I run the other way or proceed with a potential money pit?

You'll find them all under Historical & Tech. One of the Pre-War books is in Spanish. We hope you will find them useful and will put them to good use. Thank you!

Daniel Ayres suggested that I contact you. I bought the Canadian KS601 that you have a photo of on your site. You have it as a 1952, however, the title has it as a 1953.I got the bike a year ago and with the assistance of people like Daniel and sites like yours I have been able to find some of the parts that this bike needs. I am still in need of a few things, a tool box and fender stays for example. It runs and this winter I acquired a sidecar to attach in order to take my grandchildren for rides. Thanks for the great Zuendapp site.

I own a Zündapp 175 S Trophy, build 1957. Also a new Triumph Bonneville T100, modern classic bike. My father had a Zündapp repair shop and I was working there 3 years on Zündapps. I like your webpage, good job. I didn't know that there are Zündapp fans in the US. Several times a year I travel for business to California or Texas or other locations in the USA. Is there a list of Zündapp fan clubs available. If so,I would appreciate a copy. Greetings, Wolfgang

I have my fathers 1953 Zundapp two stroke 200 cc comfort, and i am looking for just a few pieces to make it complete and unrestored. and i have a couple of questions also. It was his first wheels in P A when he was 16. it runs and all is original but a few things i can not find. Tires are even original, I am looking for the side knee covers, and an original key. made one and it works, but would like to find the real thing. also wondering about the rear tail light. had to rig one up, to get it licensed to ride, {state inspection} but i am having a hard time finding one or what it even looks like. when i got it , it had old leather bags on it. i am not sure if that is how it came back than or not. in my reseach i have only seen one picture of this bike that had the same bags on it. but they looked identical. wondering if someone just bought an accessory the same or if some came like that. tech question. it has an electrical problem and runs the battery down quickley. any suggestions there? thanks for ur time. i love it and have hauled it to Sturgis S D for the ralley a few times and rode it through the main street parade. i always get a "way to go ...really cool bike...but what is it comment" gotta love it.thanks...see u on the road...Ruth

Nice website. Back in 1962 my dad bought what I believe is a 1962 Trophy. Black and chrome gas tank with the red seat. It has the turn signals at the end of the handle bars also. The bike is complete what I am looking for is someone to work on it and get it running. Then I might completely restore it. I might even sell it but I just have to hear this thing run and i want to ride it at least once in my life. Anyway if you can send some help my way I would appreciate.

Currently looking for engine/parts bike to help restore my 1973 Zundapp KS-50 WC, which I have owned for over 20-some years. Purchased used from Penton Honda, Amherst Ohio, reference American Motorcyclist January 1986 issue, Flight of the Bumblebee." As I understand, from information gleaned from a Dutch/American fellow Zundapp freak, only ten of these machines were imported into the US, through a distributor in Youngstown, Ohio. He was fortunate enough to buy a brand new ( 5 km on clock ) KS-50 WC from a shop near his hometown just a couple of years ago. He has two friends who also own the bikes. On friend built a watercooler from parts, the other friend, who is with the Indiana Pacers and shall remain nameless, owns two of the machines. It would be helpful and appreciated if you have any information regarding these machines. I have been away from motorcycling for years (after I married and raised a family), but find myself reinterested in the sport. I'm keeping my eyes open for any Zundapp bikes I can find, and have told friends to keep me informed of anything the might run across. I have owned four Zundapp so far ( Bella 150, 250 Super Sabre, Bella 200, and now the KS-50), plus the usual Hondas, Suzuki, Yamaha, and even a Jawa trials bike. But I must admit having a large soft spot in my heart for Zundapp. My wife calls me a fool often, for many reasons, one of which is my love for motorcycles. Thanks for your time, Dennis

I read Dan Ayres tale about his ex-side car racer 601 with great interest. I don't doubt the claimed (indicated) speeds, but I question his horsepower estimate of 30-especially since the engine had been tuned for racing.Her are some actual top speeds of 30hp motorcycles I am familiar with, based on road tests of the time: 1947 Norton International (500cc OHC) 97mph. BMW R60-1963 88mph.BMW R66-1938 87mph (claimed factory top speed, not a test).For Dan to be hitting an actual speed of 110mph, he would need the 38-40 hp of a BSA Goldstar, or the 45 hp of a Vincent Rapide. I think Dan is underestimating the power of his tuned 601, and I would place it at somewhere in the 40 hp range. Another bike which is more comparable is the 1953 R68 BMW, which would top 100mph on 35hp. Charlie

I owned two KS601s back in the mid sixties, one a '51, which I bought from a Harley dealer's boneyard in DC for $25.00, and the other a '57 EL. The '51, after a certain amount of work, turned into a solid, dependable bike.The '57 had a habit of eating up elastics, for reasons lost in the fog of time,and I finally blew up the gearbox racing another drunk on Broadway in NYC.I sold the carcass to Amol in New Jersey for $50.00. I always liked those old Zapps, as we called them. Maybe it's time for another one. Charlie

We have a 1958 Zundapp that we've had in our guitar showroom for a couple years now. We're remodeling and would like to sell it because of lack of room. I'm sure we would have a good deal on it, whatever that would be- but we don't know and can't find an avenue of collectors or fans to show it to. Now that I found this cool site, I wanted to ask opinions on where to sell it? Many thanks and a happy holiday to you. Brian Halley St. Blues Guitar Workshop 901-578-3588

My dad had a new black Zundapp 250 in 1960. I was impressed with it doing 70 mph two-up but less so with the exhaust falling off. The registration number was 799CYY. I wonderwhat happened to it? I have some photos which I will get round to scanning one day. I really liked the site which brought back some happy memories.

Noticed that your address is Kaufman, but I don't see a contact number. A friend of mine has a KS601 1956 model that he is considering selling. Yesterday I saw my first Zundapp and I would like to own this bike. It is a complete bike with a title,appears to be in good condition and the motor will turn over. Did not try to crank it. I have looked but cannot find any for sale to compare to know how much to offer for it. Can you give me some idea. Thanks, Coy

Hello, my name is Facundo Dufau, alias Exit. And I'm the administrator of the website Zundapp in Uruguay! We would like to visit the website to see all the work we are doing on the bike in Germany. We have several db20x, KS601, and Bella which we could not get pictures to publish yet. A shame. Although we are a small country of 3 million people, have much of the Zundapp between us. Many went to the casting of metals, others simply rotted in the open. Several people have been gathering on the web, we have restored to almost original condition motorcycles, others have changed for better and some are still factory! There are not many as I was saying, but in a country so small, almost 50 Zundapp we found in full operation. The parts in my case, I found 3 / 4 of an engine lying in a box in a warehouse ... Were restored and because of that, my motorcycle is in full operation! Well now that I am saying goodbye here on the other side of the world is already too late .. hahah. Greetings, this excellent web zundappfool. Excuse my typing errors. I am using a translator. Best Exit.

Just happened on to your site. I bought a new Zundapp 250 in 1958 when I was 15 years old. Bought it from a gentleman in Claremore, OK. who sold and raced them. Pretty much grew up with that bike. Had great times with it and eventually ask my dad to sell it for me while I was overseas in the Army.

I own a 1956 Zundapp Challenger that my father bought brand new when I was born so my mother could have the car at home. Some of my earliest memories are sitting on the tank riding down the road with him. It is the bike I learned to ride on at 10 years old. This has made me a life long biker. I have owned many bikes from many counties and mainly ride Harley's now. But I really want to restore this bike. It has been a dream of mine for many years. If anyone knows where I might find a parts bike or any type of supplier please enlighten me. I need exhaust,wheels, brakes, cables and seat recovered. Also some chrome parts restored. Although it is "only" a 200 cc machine it really means the world to me. Thanks! Grizleebear1956@yahoo.com

I met you at Eustis AMC meet on Saturday but we were continually interupted by a rude guy who kept pricing your items would walk off and then return only to interupt our discussion. So I walked off. I have a K-800 it's Doc Patts old machine and Ken Smith says Doc had it as a runner. I'm in need of the front alum. cover that shields the dist. etc and the rear cover that hides the carb. It was run as a metal flake blue chopper in Virginia in the 60's and still sports some that paint on the forks. Cowhorn H/B english brake &clutch levers no lights good fenders and and serviceable wheels. exhaust complete and original appearing but no plating. Heads have lots of broken fins. For now I plan on trying to find a front cover and rear carb cover. Its got an Amal Monoblock carb. installed which will have to do for now. I have a deep supply of Brit. vintage Amal carbs & parts but it would be good to have an amal Fisher for it if thats what it had orig. So if you can steer me in the right direction for parts or have any you'd be willing to part with let me know. Thanks for your attention to this note. All the Best Carleton Palmer Putney Vt.
