IZh Planeta 5

Well, I did it. I looked around for some time in the US and found a decently priced IZh - happened to be 50 miles from me
19xx IZh Planeta 5, brand new. 5 kms on the odo, and all accessories. Although the title states 1969, I suspect more like 1988. Great ebay/barn find! What to do with a brand new 20+ year old bike? This bike has never been started!! Ride it I guess. I will be going through it over the next week or so. Any suggestions??

fresh tires... 20 year old rubber probably won't stick too good.

then you'll probably want to pull the plug and spray some oil into the top end and kick it over a few times. then you can put the plug back in and fire it up.

If you had the space and the time, that bike is probably a collectable item in that condition. Very nice.

Interesting how did it come to USA? I had Yupiter 5 back in Ukraine. It's amazing to see it here in USA.

Oh my God!
I had 2 bikes like that one. The most problematic part of it... is the bike itself. 2 stroke engine 350 cm3(u have to blend oil with gas). Ignition is a pain in the ass to fix-it is not electronic just some kind of mechanical device. Really bad brakes, and even worse suspension. It wil leak oil everywhere. That being said they were my beginers bikes and i loved them all.

Yes definitely you have to blend oil with gas on gas station. I liked it. It's kinda ceremony. You have to shake it before ride on new gas I never had problem with an ignition. Yes you have to adjust it time to time but it's easy to do. It has never failed or stop working. I'm agree about brakes and suspension it's not modern bikes. Brakes and suspension comes from bikes of 50-60s. I don't agree about leaking oil. Izh, CZ, Jawa bikes don't leak oil if it's assembled correctly. I rode 15 thousand km on mine and it never leaked the oil.

I would say it's good bikes if you know how to care of them. It's reliable and simple.

Too bad you couldn't travel back in time three years to tell him that. (pretty sure the pic link worked when the OP started this thread)

I bought it from an individual in Missouri - near Weston.
Seems there was some guy years ago that brought over a number of these new in the crate. There was still a couple floating around a year or so ago. I know a guy that had an IZh 49 for sale (like the one pictured above), would like that one as well, but too many bikes as it is.
