I had the pleasure of dealing Paul from Perry Cycle*. He has a pretty big size motorcycle repair shop in rural upstate New York, about an hour from Buffalo. Straight off the bat what struck me about Paul was his enthusiasm and excitement for Zundapp motorcycles. He was very excited to talk to me and work on my engine. Once you go into his shop it is clear he works on a variety of motorcycles but seems to have a special place in his heart for Zundapps, including the two KS601s in his show room. Paul is also a resourceful person and understands that things don’t have to be like brand new to run. I had new pistons, valves, and springs done elsewhere, which may or may not have been needed, but Paul kept me from lamenting what was done and made me focus on the excitement of getting the motorcycle back on the road which meant a lot to me. At the time that I dropped my engine off, his arm was in a cast but as soon as it came off he promised me that he would hop on my engine. Well sure enough he did, I got a call a day or two later much to my surprise, that my engine was running. I really look forward to picking up my engine and just visiting with Paul again.
I can highly recommend Paul as a mechanic to work on your Zundapp, and I feel it would be worth shipping or traveling a distance just to have him work on your motorcycle. He is an 8 hour drive for me.

Hi Zundapp Fool:
I just found your web-site and really appreciated your content, commentary and guestbook. I also was a fool for Zundapp fool from 1967-1968, when I traded an old leather jacket for a Zundapp 250 Super Sabre (I had just turned 15). The bike came in three bushel baskets (I did have to return the baskets). It took me until I was 16 to get the bike together and running, having to search out only a very few parts and have the armature rewound. However, I did get it running and learned how to ride with it. I later traded it for a car, which I now wish I would have kept the bike or the car. I’ve just returned to putting old/”project” bikes back on the road… and seem to still have the same budget constraints. When you want to turn loose on of your basket cases, or aim someone at a lead, just let me know! Your site is fun. Thanks.

Zundapp Inquiry
Hi James,

I came upon your website recently & am intriqued how & where you find all the various models of Zundapp.

My interest in these motorcycles stems from my childhood in pre-war Germany when my father purchased a brand new Zundapp with sidecar. I can still visualize that bike & the many Sunday afternoon drives with the whole family.
Unfortunately, my father lost his bike when he & the Zundapp were "conscripted" into the German armed forces. And that was the last we ever saw of that motorcycle.

Now that I'm retired, I would like to consider purchasing one of these bikes, perhaps like the one my father had. Except that I don't know what model it was.
Though I have a couple pictures of the bike.

Anyway my point is, could you give me some pointers where I can get in contact with sellers. Or perhaps you are willing to consider selling one of your Zundapp bikes?

I will appreciate any information tyou can provide me.

Hans

1956 Zundapp
Hello,
I found your sight today. I have a '56 Zundapp that ran when I got it. I tried to "fix it up" and haven't been able to get it started since. I read through the manuals that you have on line but I can't find the parts I need to replace. I don't get a spark and it is a kick start. It has the three wires off the generator and I am not sure what does what. Okay I admit it, I bit off more then I can chew. Got any advise besides selling it or throwing it away. It would do my heart good if I got it running.

200 S ?

Hello,
I recently came into possession of what I believe to be a 1957? 200S. The bike is complete but in need of restoration. I even have the original owners manual. I live in the USA in New Jersey and I am looking for someone knowledgeable with Zundapp's to assist me in restoring the bike to its once regal original condition. I'm not familiar with Zundapp at all other than the research I have done online after acquiring it two years ago, but like you, when I first saw this bike, I had to have it! I haven't even heard it run! There was just something very unique and captivating about this strange bike as it sat hidden under a dirty old tarp nestled behind partial lawn mowers, bike frames, tire rims, and a broken window air conditioner. It was as if it had been calling out to me begging me to rescue it from its eventual demise. I 'm not sure of the year as the front page or two is missing from the manual which is written in English. I believe the model is a 200 S because it is stated on the 6th page of the manual under the "data of the vehicle" section. Any advice you can provide is greatly appreciated.
Thank You

Tank emblem for 250S trophy

Hello,
Let me say I really like your website. I am restoring at the moment a vintage Zündapp 250S Trophy, but only just started. A lot of parts have to be renewed, but the engine seems OK.

The Trophy (Super Sabre) had a special tank emblem on the tank mentioning "Trophy"

I am looking for a replica emblem but am unable to find it. Do you have a picture of that logo, or even better, the emblem itself ?
Thanks a lot for your reply.

Hello James,
 
Thank you for the fast reply and all the valuable info in it. The KS 601 engine looks pretty good but looks can lie. The engine overheated probably because of a lack of oil pressure and the pistons and cylinders have been seriously damaged by this. I have not been measuring the rest of the parts to see if there is further damage.
 
When I was looking for information or people that could help me rebuild the KS601 on a swapmeet for zundapp fans in the Netherlands I happened to meet a man who owned the KS 600 engine, which he was keeping to replace his KS601 engine, should anything go wrong. Now that he does not ride his KS601 that much he did not mind selling the KS 600 engine. The KS 600 engine has been running fine until it was taken out of its frame last year (he sold the frame seperatly) and looks very good.
 
I was very happy because it looked like an easy way to get my bike back on the road. So now I am hoping there is an easy fix to use the KS 601 gearbox on the KS600 engine. If that is not possible I think I will make a new driveshaft that connects the KS600 gearbox to the KS601 real wheel gear.
 
The only real shoowstopper would be if the KS600 engine does not fit in the KS601 frame. As far as I can see now the mounting looks simmilar. Or do you have other experiences?
 
Thank you very much for your help.
 
Kind reagrds,
 
Jim

Dear ZF,
As an old fart into BM's with a '77 R75/7, thought I'd drop you a line after seeing your great site on Z'ds. Actually I rode pillion on one back in '56-it was brand new but with no footrest for 2up as the young German rider,[Paul} wasn't supposed to do so yet on his restricted licence. As I got off I burnt the inside of my left lower leg and I've always remembered that. But the bike was brilliant- a Green Elephant-1956 K601. I've been trying to trackit down again in the past few years but no luck. I was 16 at the time.. He may be dead by now? They are few and far between in Australia. [Did own an R67/2 soon after]-Missed one [Z] last year in Adelaide for $8.5Grand but it wasn't the green one so I wasn't keen enough to rush it. Regret it now. Am in a BM group here known as the Airheads-similar to the U.S. group which only deals with traditional Bm's.
If I am lucky to find a G.E. here I'll send you a picture.

Kindest Regards and safe riding,
Ken

There were four of us who found 250 Super Sabres back in the early seventies. We set them up to enduro and we were known as the Zundapp team in southern Ohio. We weren't very competitive but we had a great time. Glad to see someone is preserving the history of this great bike.

Thanks Fool

I just happened across your site, which is very nostalgic for
me, as I once owned a 250s Zundapp in the 60's. I was in my teens and it was my 2nd bike. I was only 15 and didn't have a drivers license, so of course, I rode it all over the country roads without the muffler, which prompted quite a few complaints from a wide radius. That in turn prompted a friendly visit from the local police deputy, who told me to cool my jets. Fun memory of a fun and pretty quick bike! I think I still have that muffler in my fathers barn.
Thanks stirring up those old memories!

In 1958 I bought a new Zundapp from Bob Schultz Motorcycles on Locust St. in St. Louis, Mo. Since that time I have owned a 1949 Harley Hydra Glide, 1964 Triumph Bonneville, 1984 Goldwing and now have a 2007 Harley Sportster. I am 73 yrs old and in reflection the Zundapp was the most fun bike to ride. If I remember right it was a 250cc. When I relate to others about the bikes I have owned, very few have ever heard of a Zundapp.

Hello James, I read the article about you in Hemmings. My first bike was a Zundapp. I bought it in boxes in a neighbor's basement in Taconite Minnesota about 1967. The reason it was apart was that the first gear was missing a tooth and the owner couldn't find the part. I gave the sprocket to my uncle who was a welder and he filled in the space where the tooth should have been and gave it back to me to file out the shape of the tooth. Because the new tooth wasn't hardened it would wear out in about three months and then I would do the job again. I an not sure about the year but I think it was a late fifty's model. The engine was 50CC two stroke and the rear portion of the frame was cast aluminum with a curved pipe going from the casting to the triple tree. The tires were wide for a bike this size so I could ride it on the snowmobile trails. I had it for about three years but I will never forget it. This bike gave my my first taste of freedom. I rode it from age 13 to age 16. Things I remember about it were the enclosed chain, the huge speedometer, the decoration on both sides that looked like a comet's tail, there was no battery so the electricals worked off the magneto so as you revved the engine the lights got brighter and the horn got louder. Thanks for having this website.

Thanks for the note. James

In 1957 I owned a DB 255 Zundapp. It was my first motorcycle. I had the bike before I had a drivers license. It was a 1955 and I must say a pretty neat machine for 15 year old kid. My goal at that time was to get a Zundapp twin. Unfortunately I never did. Instead, I bought a car to haul girls around in. That was the end of my motorcycle days.

After more than 40 years without a motorcycle I bought a new Harley Electro Glide Classic in 2001 which I'm still riding today.

Hi. I have really enjoyed your site and have a few questions about some of the parts in your boneyard. Just purchased a 1932 Zundapp 200 and it is missing the footpeg rubbers. Are the rubbers you have for sale similar to the original (1932) or a newer year? I can't seem to find a good enough picture of the originals to see them very clearly. I am also interested in the NOS Generator Cover (01). Can you give me a shipping price to zip code 84107 for the cover and for the foot peg rubbers, both rider (2) and passenger pegs/kick starter (3). Thank you very much for your time. -Pat

Hi there. I just stumbled across your website and it's great. I wish I knew about it when I had my old Zundapp- I think it was a db202? Two stroke, plunger rear, tele. front vertical cylinder. Anyways, it's gone but I have a chance to buy another Zundapp from a buddy. Not sure what model. He says it's a 1958 Zundapp 750 and he wants $800- I think it's a 250 though. It runs but it's been a while since it has been ridden. What is the value of such a bike? I have lots of Triumph and BSA bikes that are easy to price, but I have no idea what this thing is worth. Are all the important parts still available?  (pistons, gaskets, seals, carb kits) Any advice is appreciated- I'm still trying to decide whether to add this one to the collection or not. Thanks is advance and here's a few pix of it.   Pete

Hi,
Loved all you your stuff about Zündapp motorcycles. My first reliable motorcycle back in '56 was a Zündapp 200S bought new. I was only 17 at the time but rode it all over Switzerland that year and enjoyed every bit of it.
Often pine for a Zündapp as I have always admired their engineering. Have owned and ridden Harleys since late 50's and still own a Dou Glide I bought new in 1960.
Will enjoy you site now I have found it.

Had a ss250 in the late 50s and early 60s while in HS. Great little machine. I also had a friend that had an opposed Zundapp twin with a distinctive anti-dive front suspension. When you braked the front wheel the front of the bike actually rose as opposed to dive. Anyone have any idea what this opposed twin would have been called? Does anyone have any idea if either of these types of bikes can be purchased in NA?

hi there James ,first off i would like to say that ive enjoyed viewing your site on these incredible motorcycles and the work that you have done to them ,you've done an incredible job . just a few years ago my parents who are from Germany and moved to Canada we were going through some old photos of my mothers father in the war and she stumbled across a photo of him on a army issue Zundapp motorcycle ,possibly 1941 in Denmark at a recovery center from the Russian front and i thought that the motorcycle was pretty neat looking and was trying to find some history on the type of bike it was especially the way the motor is designed etc . my father also remembers going to the stadium races that they held in Germany with the Zundapp motorcycles he said it was amazing to watch . anyways to make a long story short ,i myself am an avid motorcycle rider of a Harley Davidson Sportster which i enjoy very much and my question to you is do you know of any Zundapp motorcycles in need of restoration for sale in Canada or in the pacific northwest ,example Bellingham Washington area ? for i feel it would be a nice goal for myself to restore one of these bikes to ride and take to special events . have a nice day and hopefully hear from you soon sincerely Michael .


Howdy James...You might wish to put this on your photo section. This is
#554724, a 1954 sport, with standard type wheels mounted, originally
rot wine, with the currently available substitute (as far as I know) for
the original now NLA oversize Pagusa seat rubber. I'm finally "dialing
in" this motorcycle after many years of ownership. The more one works on
KS601 Zundapp, the more one appreciates the quality of the design. The
BMW's may be prettier, but the Zundapps have all the
engineering!!!...Regards, Stephen Ascherl / Michigan

Hi. I have a friend, Vin who has 5 Zundapps. Vin had the best collection I have ever seen, including an immaculate K-800. Sadly about 10 years ago the whole lot went up in a workshop fire. He has spent the time since raising his KS-750 from the ashes. His K-800 was featured in the book "The Golden Age of the Fours". Vin is getting on and is not internet savvy, so I thought I better put in a word for him on this site. Zundapp Uber Alles in aller Welt!

My first real dirt bike was a 1968 ISDT 100 cc Zundapp. Sometime after ward my brother got a 1952 flat twin that he was supposed to restore. He never did, gave it back to the owner who was rumored to have sold the papers and numbers to an outlaww to register a stolen bike, and scrapped the Zundapp. (SAD I know) I had the tool box for years but it finally disappeared. Love your story. Let me know if you decide to pass on another Zundapp purchase.

Hi James, I am glad to know that someone is indulging their "just gotta have". I grew up in Dallas in the fifties when you could see Zundapps, BMWs,and just about every other make of bike you could think of on a daily basis. Later, after having lived in Fredericksburg I owned 175cc Street CZ. The absolute best bike I ever had, including the BMW r65. Unfortunately, CZ motorcycles seem to have gone the way of the DODO. Keep up the good work. Orman

Hello, I own the green Zundapp monster (little) db202 in the visitor's motorcycle page. I love the little two stroke, and always get lots of attention when I ride it. I also have a vintage 1969 Honda cb450 with the chrome Japanese domestic tank and long fender. Oh so much fun to ride as well. Is there anyone else in the Ft worth area?

I had a Zundapp 200cc in 1959,1960 or sometime thereabouts. I wish I could remember the model #. I didn't think that Zundapp was still made. Glad to know they're still out there.

I have a1957 Zundapp 250cc Super Sabre in my garage that has been sitting for over 25 years. It's in good shape, but the engine is out and partially apart. The jug is off and parts of the clutch are likely missing--maybe not. The seat and fenders, gas tank, speedometer and such are great. Key is in the headlight slot. Wheels and tires are good. Should I try to restore the bike or sell it? My time is limited and I would love to see the bike back on the street. As I look thru the emails I see that parts are very expensive and apparently hard to find. With that in mind, should I part it out and possible get more money and at the same time help a lot of people with their projects. Email me back and tell me your thoughts. Thanks, Ron

Anyone looking to sell a good generator from a 250 Super Sabre should send me an e-mail...I've been looking for a long time and really could use one. My bike came over to the U.S. with my father when he came home from the Army. He was stationed in Nuremburg and bought the bike there in 1963, the last year they were made. It's a complete bike, but the generator is burned up and I have no idea how to repair it. Good site, BTW! Lots of cool pictures and a great resource for Zundapp owners. I've been to this site nearly every day for the last few weeks, and it's in my favorites list now :)

Hi James hope all is well with you and yours. I recently came across a 1958 Florida cycle supply catalog from Jacksonville that has some Zundapp aftermarket? accessories illustrated you might be interested in for your archives. Its mostly challenger and super Sabre but the thing i found most interesting was a seat rail with a huge cast aluminum ''zundapp''plaque on the rear! I'll try to get you some pics in the next couple days. cheers Rick

Thanks Rick,

I'm curious about that plaque. Still got your K800?

I had a 1957 Zundapp 250 when I was in high school from 1957 to 1961. My brother and I used to ride with some Triumph and Harley riders all over the east coast going to races on the weekends. I lived in Lansdale, Pa and we would go to Marboro, Maryland, Laconia,Nh, Watkins Glenn and any where they were racing bikes that weekend and I could get off my part time job. I bought used in 1957 from private party when he suffered a broken leg in a work accident. I paid $375 for it and then I sold my Cushman scooter for $150. It was a real reliable bike and only let me down once on a trip when the battery went south and I had to wait unti morning to resume my trip home (no lights). When I went to college I sold it to my brother and he used it for a couple of years until he went in the Navy. I wish I had kept it. It was a neat bike. My father used to take it out on Sunday morning and go for a little ride and when he would get back he would say "I cleaned it out for you". Len Musgrave A fellow lover of the Zundapp

I have never owned a Zundapp but can remember first seeing one while in Junior High (1960-1963) here in Chattanooga. At that time I owned a Mustang (pony model if I remember right) and there was quite a mixture of assorted motorcycles and mopeds around...Harley Hummers, NSU as well as Sears Allstate cycles, a few assorted Triumphs and a few brand new Hondas (sport50's and a 250 Dream) but can to this day still hear the sound those Zundapp's made as the left the parking lot. I had a friend that had a small motorcycle called a "J B" single cylinder..3 speed transmission that shifted on the left handlebar (like a moped or scooter). Can anyone tell me any information about the JB motorcycle? We ran a paper route on the weekend and used his motorcycle simply because it had a double seat as opposed to my single seat Mustang. Thanks and "keep um running"

My father was in three major *campaigns in Italy (1944-45)WWII with the 362 Regimental Combat Team, 91st Infantry Div. *Rome-Arno, *Apennines, *Po Valley Their last campaign was an assault down through the Po estuary (North Italy) forcing the Germans across the Po river. They literally swam across leaving tons of equipment on it's S. bank. He always wished he could of sent home a Zundapp or two or tewnty. He and a fellow soldier used one to lay commo wire making the task much easier. He was always impressed with German engineering and design such as the Zundapp. Thank you father. Rest in peace.

When I was much younger I knew a contemporary who owned a brand-spanking-new Zundapp 250. I always envied him for owning that bike. In the 1960's I found a kid who owned an old Zundapp 250 which was (no kidding) in cardboard boxes; even the spokes were taken out of the rims! I bought the thing for $25 and eventually put it back together. I rode it for many years and eventually sold it to someone else. I still miss that thing sometimes! Thanks for sharing ... Jim

i lived in dallas tx all of my 69 years and there used to be a indian dealership that carried zundapp ,indians,mustangs and some that i have forgoten (it was across the street from a harley house). about in the 1950's they had a zundapp that had a side car with with the side car driven also,(i beleive that it was shaft driven) the story was that it belonged to the german general rommell and the tires were to leave tracks like a tank in the sand. the color was red or deep maroon.had hydraulic brakes on the side car as well as the front and rear. i was wondering if you have ever seen this motorcycle or do you think that it even exists any more? ron

I have a 1953 Zundapp Comfort that my dad owned and hasn't been touched since 1965. Any idea about whether it should be restored or sold as is? It is in ok condition, but I have no idea if it is worth putting any time/money into it. Any imput would be appreciated. ben

[Guess that really depends on your mind set and attitude Ben. If you love the challenge and like working on stuff then it will be great fun. Two entries down from yours is Joann out in Phoenix. She just sold her '53 Comfort for $3500.00 on Ebay which she claims allowed her to just break even. Why not drop her an email and see what she can tell you about restoring a 1953 Comfort. Hers was beautiful though not quite correct. As for what it is worth, depends on what it looks like to both you and any prospective buyers and whether it will start and run or not. There aren't a lot of the little old Zuendapps around anymore and they are always a hit at shows, parades, and events because of their uniqueness. Let me know down the line what you did with it. Tried to send this as email, but you've put blocks on all incoming is would seem. Good night,

As a teenage kid growing up in the 70's in Oxnard CA, I traded a fellow classmates dad a 1/4 midget go-cart for a rusty old Zundapp 250S that he had sitting out back of his house. He wasn't mechanically inclined....and I loved to tinker with this old oddball stuff. (I also found a Ducati 200 dirt bike about the same time...another story). I got that old Zundapp running and played with it for sometime. Never registered it....just road it about at night. I remember the huge fenders and the huge fins on the head. It never sounded very good because it had a cracked piston skirt. Eventually part of the skirt came off and tore up the lower end. I still have the owners manual kicking around here somewhere...along with the Ducati and some very old Honda's....I never get rid of any documentation like that. .....I remember that Zundapp was the most unusual bike I had ever seen....and I had wished I could have kept it on the road. But I was a broke teenager. I loved reading your stories here....Thanks, brought back many memories of my days with a Zundapp....and that big old head and barrel that must have weighed in at 50 pounds.

Interesting site. I owned a 1951 Zundapp KS601 years ago. Bought it for $25.00 from the local Harley shop in Washington D.C. It was rotting away in the their trash pile, and they were happy to see it go. It was probably the best motorcycle on the premises, unbeknownst to them. This was around 1966.I got it going pretty quick, and rode it around for several years before selling it to a friend who took it to a mountain top in New Hampshire. I wonder what ever became of it?

I am aware I am a "Double motorcycle fool" indeed. It happens I received a "Gift horse", a Zundapp BD 200 in a very bad shape and my intention is to restore it. Probably I am a "triple motorcycle fool" becouse I have restored four H-D (1927, 1930, 1942 military & 1977) so I badly need your help. The BD 200 data are: Motor Nr. 240743, Fahrgest Nr. 240743, Gwicht 115, Ps 7, Huvoi 196 cm3, Hub u. Bohrg 70 x 60. I would like to know: 1.- The year the BD 200 was made. 2.- Where can I obtain the spare parts & maintenance cataloges. 3.- Where can I get the spare parts I may need. Thank you all in advance for the help you may provide. markoj

I have owned my 1952 KS601 since 1971. I bought it from a friend who rode it from Mass. to Co. to attend college in 1957. As he was only the second owner, that makes me the third. I used it for daily transport- weather allowing- from '74 to '80. Now it's time to restore the old Gal. I'm glad to find a source of parts. Its great to find another KS freak!

After reading your story I realized that I'm not the only Zundapp nut, the reason I say this is your story is very similiar to mine. When I was a kid I had a 1954 Bella, this was in 1958 at the time I was 12 years old. When I first seen the 601's I thought that this was the most beautiful motorcycle I had ever seen. When I was 13 I found a 601 for sale for $375. My dad and I looked at it and he said that it was too big for me and wouldn't let me buy it. I rode my Bella for 3 years throwing a Houston Chronicle paper route never forgetting the 601. All these years the desire has always been in my head and my heart to own a 601. I have looked many years and not found one. After reading your story I would like to know if you could help another Zundapp fool complete his dream. Any help you can give me or lead me to one will be gratefully appreciated. Another fool Carl Scroggins Houston,TX 281-442-7672 Thanks a lot!!!

Had a 250SS while in HS in the late 50's early 60's. Have located a 250SS unit that is like new, less than 1K miles on the odometer. Never been outside except to ride a little. What should I offer on this bike? I saw it a few years ago and believe me it is like new, except for the rubber parts show most of the effects of 50-60 years of age. Your comments would be appreciated. Also does the K800 have 4 cylinders? Thanks for your consideration.

I have been a "fool" since the late sixties when I bought my KS601 for $300 from Charles Chatfield Taylor, the Vincent collector, who had no more use for "Teutonic" motorcycles. I patched it together while I was in college and rode it a little but have always planned a real restoration. Looking forward to perusing your site. I have a small pile of parts that came with the motorcycle including a parts bike and a Bella, complete but rough. Paul

seems a lot harder for you to keep your Zundapps running as it is for me right here in Germany. I got my KS 601sp from my father who bought this motorcycle in 1954. I did a complete restoration 1990 - 1991 and had lot of trouble afterwards, especially with the oil pressure. Right now the 601 is in a very good shape and hopefully this may be the case for a longer period. As you probably may know there is a Zundapp KS 601 Club in Germany and this a real fortune for all members like me because they can get help and spare parts. Without this support I probably would have a lot of trouble to keep the 601 alive. If you need assistance especially concerning addresses in Germany feel free to contact me.

James, thanks for your answer, last night seeing your web site I finally discovered the model of my bikes both are ZUNDAPP TROPHY 250 S. Apparently they are en better shape than most of the bikes I saw in the website, so that makes me thing the restoration is possible. I’ll take them photos and send them to you. These bikes are very important to me because they are the only thing a have from my grandfather after he died, so my idea is make of those bikes a “TROPHY” in his memory. If you could send me some photos o this specific model it’ll be great. Thank you, I’ll be in touch…

Dear Zundapp fool, My father bought a manual from EBAY for his citation. When we got the CD he realized he copied the manual from your web site, and actually used my dads bike as the cover for the CD (which also came from your web site). The person who gave you the right to use the manuals was very generous, and the manuals have greatly helped my dad work on his bike. I just don't want to see this guy continue to make money off the generosity of the Zundapp people on the website. There is currently one listed on EBAY.com and in the description it states that it is a CD. Sorry I had to notify you on this, but I don't want to see your web-site exploited. Grant Rivard

Enjoyed your website. I and several of my friends rode Zundapps in the 50's.We had the Challenger, Super Sabre, and one friend had what I think was a 750cc? twin. We also had Velocettes, NSU's, BSA's, and Triumphs. This brings back a lot of great memories. We lived in St. Mary's, Ga.

I saw a 1957 Zundapp challenger on your website, it was owned by Mike McNeely, the picture showed it at what appears to be a show or a meet. I am interested in contacting this gentleman to inquire if he would consider selling this bike, it is a 200cc. I am also interested in acquiring a very nice Super Sabre in the condition that McNeely's Challenger appears to be in. I thank you for all your help. Regards, Chris Healy

Hi James, It's been a while since I have written, but I have been checkin' from time to time. the site is looking great. I was looking at my 601EL with a friend today, and we got talking about the side car mounts, and a good side car for the bike. He remembered that he had seen Steibs on them, and commented on how the hack even had a 601 wheel on it. Well one thing led to another, and I thought I would check around to see if you might have, or know the where-bouts of a 601-EL wheel or hub. I did not see one in the Bone Yard, but thought I would ask anyway. Let me know, if you have a moment, please. Not to much else going on. I get an occasional ride in on the EL, (not enough), and keep busy with the others too. My KS 750 made the move from Memphis to Orlando, and is looking good at the new venue, (the Orlando Museum of Art) With "The Art of the Motorcycle. Hope you get to see it there. I'm looking forward to getting it back, so I can get it out to the meets. Well all the best, and I'll close for now. Hope to hear how things are going, and if you might know anything about a wheel for a hack. Thanks and great riding, Jack Wells

Proud original owner of one (now very rough condition)1953 Zundapp "Comfort" 200cc, two-stroke, four speed, 6V, 3.25" x 19" wheels. Original color was maroon. Was a wonderful boys first motorcycle. Rode it all through high school and then my brother took it over and did the same. Dated my girl friend for four years with many miles on Zundapp. Now we've been married 45 years.

My first Zundapp was a 150cc Zundapp Suburbanette scooter. I bought from some friends who were well enough off that mom would buy the kids a new one whenever the old one broke. So when the Suburbanette quit they pushed it into the garage and bought a new one. I bought it with a couple of months of lawn mowing money. I was 13. That was 1956. It didn't run and I spent quite a bit of time getting it going. I found out that when those kids break something they do it good! I can't remember how long I had it but I did enjoy it. It was a quality machine and it had a very distinctive, unique sound to the engine that I found interesting. We can fast forward through about 20 motorcycles. Then in the 80's I got my next Zundapp. It was a Bella R203 scooter. A gift from my wife. She knew I had one many years before, heard me speak lovingly about it, so when one came up she bought it and gave it to me as a Christmas gift. More later.

Does anyone have any idea how many Zundapps' were imported into the U.S.? I am truly amazed at how many of these machines are still in existence! I've been a Zundappfool for over forty years. It's good to know I'm not alone. My first was a 250 Super Sabre. That was a real man's machine. Anyone who could compete in an ISDT on one of those had to have big, big ones! Next came two Bella scooters. Not at the same time, but after I got rid of the first one, I realized my addiction was stronger than I had realized, and found another. Had it for many years. I can't exactly remember why I parted company with it, but I have reason to believe there was a woman involved some way or another. It takes a woman to bring out the fool in a man. I'm currently the owner of a 1974 KS50 WC. If anyone out there has one please drop me a line as I'm interested in touching base with you. My wife insists I'm out of my mind for taking that thing out on the interstate. What do you think?

Purchased today 175s and a 250 both in need of parts and a shot-blast and powder coater luckily I have a friend in the powder coat trade. Found your site very helpful with parts plates pictures so good to identify the models would like to know the correct colors though as the 175 is painted in what looks like army colors!!

I am looking for a Zundapp KS 601 EL "Elastic". My neighbor just found one and I really like the bike! Do you know of any for sale? Also looking for a BMW R69. You seem to have a lot of interesting bikes so I thought you might know where some of these bikes might be hiding. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! Many thanks, John

This site is extremely interesting, compliments! I am a proud owner of a KS600 since 1957, the bike is still in working order. I expect to undertake a full restoration in the near future. I will be in need to recover some original spare parts. For the time being I'm trying to locate The 4 valve covers (caps) which got damaged after a tip-over. Any advice? Regards, Franco

I purchased a new Zundapp, single cylinder 250 in 1959. Sadly sold in 1961. Wish I had it back. Great bike then. Smaller bikes were Harley Davison 125 and 165 Pea Poppers. Sometime they would run. A friend of mine had a 250 Maaco?. We rode many miles together. In high school, we would log about 3000 miles in the summer. Enjoyed your pictures and articles. I have one picture of my 250 and would send to you if you wish. Thanks, CB

My father had a Zundapp that he has recently given to me. It is a 1964 Zundapp 50cc, It is in mint condition. Only 1300 original miles on it. I can only remember a handful of times he drove it, but he was always cleaning it. It runs great has all original parts, tires, everything. My sons are in love with this bike. I'm glad to see there are others out there with the love for these that my father had.

I think it might be pretty cool to be a fool, A friend of mine rescued a machine very much like your red single seater. He wanted to hang it on the wall in his rec room/bar and I said we ought to be riding it instead. Today we hauled it over to my farm shop and looked it over. It is pretty much all there but it has had flood damage, to the extent there is silt (hard caked mud) in air tubes and carb inlets. Drained about a quart of water out of the crankcase and started soaking up the cylinders to try to un-stick her. Backed off the brakes and got the wheels to turn which makes it a lot easier to move around. Those old bias-ply tires even held air. I am unsure how I should go about breaking the pistons loose without damaging the drive train or kick start. Being an impatient sort of guy on limited finances I really didn't want to tear into the bottom end. I have never been into an opposed twin before and nothing of this vintage. Any advice, information would be appreciated Thanks, Lenn

ps.... I really like your site, keep it up.

Well, to be a Zündapp fool is not your exclusive. There are an Spanish Mechanical Eng. 53 living in sao Paulo, crazy for BMW and Harley. One day He found a R61 1938 BMW and start to restore. Somebody spokes about a Steib Side and a very old Steib N28 model 1937 appears. Together some rare machine similar to BMW was silently resting. Some weeks later the real thing start to happened. No more 71 and 72 Shovel details, no more BMW R75/5 or R61, an incredible strong feeling starts to grow. How Zundapp closed? How Chinese sold it to Honda?. Today I only get two KS500(1937, 1937) that are running almost complete, tree K500 (1936,1937,1937). two running and one with front fork missing. As you now very well, to get all is a patience infinite game , but .............I will help you, you will help me. I am very happy to meet you. Best regards.

Hi James, It was great to see all the antiques! I have memories of my father riding one of the old Zundapps in the 50's, in Germany. And I drove a Maico in the 60's when I was still a youngster. Ha Ha! It's really interesting how many people are still into these machines. Good luck with your business.

Hi James, Have just got myself a 1952 601s ,probably the only one here in England? I know the feeling, what is it about them? someone once describe them as being like farm machinery, very basic and not glamorous (pretty) designed to do a job, and do it well .my one is all light green in color including the frame, with no paint over, rims are black paint. every reference I have got says a darker green with black frame. So is my one original thanks. great site.

James, interesting website. I very much liked the comment "If I would be younger, have more money but no wife I would get into Zundapps as well" ;-) I'm sure without family and with more money we all would be dead anyway. Remember only scarce resource is interesting. If you would have it all, it would be boring. Cheers, Thomas (KS 500 restored in running order)

Nice website, James. If I didn't have so many damn projects and so little time, I could make room in my garage for a Zundapp or two, especially a K800, which its the one I really want. Bruce

In the process of getting my Grandpas 1957, 601 out of storage. It hasn't been started sense 1973. The only good thing is that it's been in climate controlled storage.

James, I'm impressed. If I were younger, richer and had more time and space and didn't have a wife, I could get into Zundapps. Best of luck to you, and most importantly, have fun. Jay

Great collection. The KS600 frame does not have handle for lifting the bike onto center stand, it had no center stand but had crossover between exhaust pipes. The K500 and the K800 had handles and center stand. Bob Silas

Hi James, This is turning into a great site! The tool info was very helpful to the mechanic rebuilding my engine, so thanks a ton! So, when are you going to post some KS600 parts in the "Bone Yard" (hint, hint)? Thanks again, and keep up the good work, - Doug

Great site! why haven't I run across it before? I'm currently looking for the following for my 38 k800.[yes, I have one too! lol.] top and front engine covers, original amal carb [I can dream can't I? lol] and any thing that I'd be willing to buy just to have around for spares. oh, yes, also need a set of rubber knee blocks [old or repro would be fine] also looking for spares for my 53 Maico Mobil. any helped would be greatly appreciated and I'd even be willing to name my third born after you! lol Thanks Rick

What a nice site. Truly a labor of love. Now I wish I hadn't sold off my two KS601s years ago, but hopefully they managed to find a loving home somewhere. I will have to console myself with BMWs in the interim.

Jim, it has been long time since we have talked to each other. I have two 601 ELs, one running, and the other, to be put together, all painted, chromed ,,, but with too little time. I have a 1941 R 75, immaculate, running very well, and a 1943 BMW R75 with SC, complete, that I was told, running. I got it from an engineer in Sterling, Colorado. He sent me the list of his expenses, restoration, and parts, and comes to $ 25.000. what is out of range for the level of restoration done ( very poor). I have invested on it $ 17.500. If you are interested, let me know, and maybe we can work something out.. What is the going price of a completed, running K 800? If you want to communicate by email mine is drjnm at aol.com, or by phone 1-281 412-0136 (home) or 1-281-300-0465 (cell) . Next Tue. the 23rd, I will be going to Spain, for two weeks, until Dec.7 I have seen (today) your web page, and you are crazy for Zundapps, and I am crazy for Zundapps, BMWs. and NSU, so, every body has to have some passion in life; our common problem, is space to be able to get more bikes. hope to hear from you soon, Dr. Joseph Medrano.

Hi James, I was hoping to be the first to sign in but at least I'm in the top 3. Your site is fantastic and a very welcome addition to the Zündapp owning community. Keep up the great work, Regards, Kevin Daly (aka : Fool in training)

Hello Zeeefoool, This looks to be a nice an interesting website. I like old motorcycles.. specially those German boxer twins made in the 30's and 40's not to mention the ubiquitous BMW R12. I read somewhere that Zundapp's also had an engine with four spark plugs. Will you be covering that too. Unfortunately I have never owned a Zundapp.....perhaps someday I will All the best Nigel

Welcome to my new web site. I hope that you, the viewer, are thoroughly entertained and that  you will tell your many Zundapp friends about this place. I want to bring out the kinds of information that owners of the Zundapp twins and fours have always wanted but could never find. And eventually I'll even have some really interesting stuff to sell. I don't know exactly where this site will go to but sit back and enjoy the ride and let me do the driving. Thank you all, Zeeefool
