The last Zundapp 250’s made in Munich came with painted and lacquered engine cases.

Back in 2013 I received a phone call from a man who had seen my Web/blog page. He was asking about a Zundapp 250s he had rescued from a skip,not quite true! I think the little sad Zundapp was about to be thrown in the skip.Mick (the man who rang me) thought it was a sad end to such a nice bike and decided he would rescue it!Thinking he would maybe  restore it one day.Now we move forward to 2014 and Mick had second thoughts about a restoration and offered me the bike,well i wasn’t sure if i needed another Zundapp having already restored 2 in the past.But my weakness is a German bike so agreed a small fee and the Zundapp was mine.It has taken me about 14 months to restore the bike with a full engine stripdown,rebore ,seals and i am waiting for a modern 12 volt electrics from Germany.The painting and lining i did myself with a new exhaust pipe and silencer plus a seat covered,it makes a striking looking bike.
