Heres my Bultaco M143 Frontera 350cc Poppa Bul and I have been together 26 years, so far he was stolen and found the same day with 150 unathorized miles, had 3 rebuilds on the engine a pair off wheel bearings in each wheel and three drive chains and a whole bunch of tires I'm going to have to put a new shift drum and first gear in soon it still works fine just noisey. May do a repaint, maybe not. I don't look as good I did 26 years ago either.


Next is a 1974 Puch 175 my brother found it about 20 years ago this thing is fast as hell. Also original except the IT 175 rear fender.


This 1951,52 or 53 Zundapp 200cc Norma Luxus is an enduro bike by default, to make a long story short after I bought this 10 years ago for $40.00 plus 10% buyers premium (no shit) at the estate auction of a friend of mine (left overs from his shop), I wondered how the poor thing could get so horribly beat up. I mean frame tubes smashed almost flat and attemps to beat beat them back to something resembling round. At the next meeting the off road club I belong too had, our most senour member (60 years in the club) was asking me about my buy of the day as I was telling him how beat up this poor Zundapp was He stopped me and told me he could'nt remember the name of the owner but it was bought brand from our friends shop in 1951 or '52. It was never used for anything but scrambles and enduro competion. I'm still hoping one of my club mates finds a picture of this bike at one of our events. I found it painted similar to this under a massivly thick coat of brushed on paint when sand blasting it. I still need piston, rings and main bearings.
