Laugh Mechanische Probleme

Die mechanischen Probleme muessen natuerlich als erstes repariert werden. Wenn TUeV bei euch so streng ist als wie er in Deutschland war, dann muB der Ofen natuerlich total in SchuB sein. Auserdem, die Federung ist so ziemlich das Wichtigste nach dem Motor.

Du darfst nicht vergessen das dieser Ofen nicht mehr gebaut wird. Also auf gut Deutsch, der Wert geht rauf. Jetzt sind die Preise sehr tief aber in 10 zu 20 Jahren wird die MZ einen Haufen wert sein. Deine MZ errinert mich and manche Triumph Motorraeder aus den spaeten 50ziger Jahren. Die hatten auch so Verkleidungen und waren haeslich. Zur der Zeit konte man sie fuer fast Nichts kaufen. Heute, bringen sie ueber $20,000 rein.

Viel spaB mit deinem Fund!!

Great bike,please leave the Patina.
The headlight doesn't turn with the front wheel,right?
I'd like to see how that steering works & a picture of the speedometer gauge.

The ladies seem to love the ES as well.

Sweet!
I'd just steel wool the chrome then clear-coat it.
Maybe hi-temp on the mufflers.

My first dirt bike was a 125cc DKW(deek).

Use some Autosol polish and 0000 grade steel wool on the exhaust and it’ll look fine.

I like how the front wheel/ fender combo looks like Pacman

Oh, MY! Now that is well......odd. I had a MZ 125SM and it was stellar looking, one of the most beautiful bikes ever. I do love the ODD looks of that one as well! Tell me, did the one you trade look like that too? I'd LOVE to have a running rider like that! Here's my MZ.



Just a tad different looking!

naa, the old es/2's only go into a slight steady wobble if pushed hard...

as you're familiar with the es, you know the score... definitely have a look at the swing arm axles and make sure they're well oiled as long as you can still disassemble them. also the magnesium thingy holding the front together corrodes like mad from the inside. possibly you can swop the wrong (longer) shocks for the correct rear items... unfortunately it won't be easy to find a rear light with the fitting rubbermanifold.
i guess the people at mz-forum.com can offer help here. good luck and godspeed,

max +:)

btw:



anyone in britain has a superelastic-chassis stacked in a forgotten corner???

Wow! So many comments already, didn't see that coming :)

Here is a picture of the bike I traded with, engine wise, it was in better condition, but this model is way more fun I think.

A picture of the steering.



altf4,which magnesium thingie are we talking about?



This is the bike I traded with. It had a refurbished engine with an MZ-b system, so everything was grand in the engine department, and the rest of the bike was mechanically very sound as I've done a running resto, like when having the wheel off, switch bearings etc.

I've had very fond memories of the bike, also called Emma. We've been to the Alps twice, once with a sidecar, but it was time to move on.

I have loads of pictures from last years trip, which can be found here if you are interested:
