1978 Zundapp KS 175 Classic Two Stroke Motorcycle in Outstanding Condition

70s era now 45Yrs old a classic with very low miles

Built in Munich West Germany before the factory gates closed in 1984 this Zundapp KS175 (1978) single cylinder watercooled two stroke was up against the Japanese built motorcycles like the Yamaha RD250 and later LC.with 30+bhp 12v electrics, autolube systems and a cheaper sale price .

In comparison the Zundapp has 6v electrics, no neutral light or electric start,17bhp and you have to premix your oil with petrol at 50:1
However It is a quality built endearing motorcycle with good handling and brakes thanks to the standard components from Koni rear shocks, Grimeca cast wheels, brakes ,Marzocchi forks a good Bosch CDI ignition system.

Many owners have covered large mileages and the Zundapp still has a strong following on the Continent especially in Netherlands and Germany where most spares can still be sourced.

This bike was aquired by me in 2019 and imported to Scotland from Ireland. Showing only 740km approx (Yes 740Km) from new and having spent most of its life in a garage. The bike has most of the original standard components. Paint and chrome has been redone, front hydraulic brake has been overhauled and new wheel bearings fitted. Some powder coating has been carried out on the cycle components.
As a precaution new crank seals and outer crank bearings were replaced which was like working on a new engine due to its extremely low mileage.

The Zundapp is now classed Historic as recorded on the V5 (which is in my name) so no Road Tax.

Worth viewing this is one for the two-sroke connoisseur and certainly a bit different compared to the Yamaha RDs Suzuki and Kawasaki two strokes of the same era.

The Zundapp is located in South Scotland near Edinburgh
