BaT Auction Success Story: 1942 Zundapp KS750 Project –draft
This just in from the buyer of the 1942 Zundapp KS750 Project that was listed on BaT Auctions 12/22/17 (link):
“The project has been now fully restored. I have rebuilt both engine and transmission and it has been great fun: the previous owner was already planning to restore the engine and he purchased a lot of parts. I found the remaining parts in Germany, Peter Hommes has everything for both Zundapp KS 750 and BMW R75. The bike is now fully functional, starts at the first attempt and drives up to 45 mph. Both gear box and differential locking mechanism are working perfectly.
I have added few accessories: a 20L fuel tank, the lateral support for the MG34, mess kit, a shovel, an air pump, a leather bag of the German Officers with compass and maps that I purchased in Russia, the spare barrel of the MG with its canister, a gas mask with its canister etc.
To avoid issues with paper and authorization, I decided to buy a replica MG42, same weight and shape of the original: you can see it on the lateral support.
I have installed the wood inside the sidecar and the original cover together with a new seat: I kept the original as it is an amazing piece of history.
I have also assembled the spare engine (an empty box) and it is now sitting in my living room. A very nice display.
Thanks to BaT for this unique piece of history and amazing German engineering.
