Not many points for symmetry on that streetside head.
The push rods do travel freely. Wadda ya think of the curbside ?

There is something about these eastern European bikes that appeal to me.

Not quite, Zündapp originated in Nuremberg.

Finally read this thread and you Zundapp guys are awesome.
Saw the post #55 with the oil fill question and the proper translation is:

Check oil here
Add oil here

Do not trust the translation programs. I realize that this one was self evident but in general they're not even close.
If you do need anything translated, pm me and I'll gladly help out.

Any more progress?
You have a lot more patience than I.
I would sure like to see a video (with sound) when you fire the old girl up!

Sure wish I could have restored my KS601. But mine was in such poor shape that it was going to empty my bike fund for eons and then some.

Elastik

An Elastik-modell? You got lucky, only 700? were made before four-stroke production was halted, and very few got to the USA.
Ernst Leverkus road tested a KS601 EL / Steib TR500 for Das Motorrad when it was new, and I think he ended up buying the outfit.
There was also a gelandesport model for the ISDT with high pipes etc., I have seen them on the ISDT history sites.
I had a humble Zundapp 200 Confort for a while, charming machine.

Nice to see the...er...period...adverts up there.

I just acquired a 1956 KS 601 EL and I'll be following this thread closely.
Never seen one before, never wanted one, didn't even know they existed.
After taking a first look at mine I knew I couldn't pass it up.
Hoping to rig up my ACAP sidecar and roll up some serious blacktop miles (probably some browntop too!)
These are serious machines, more expensive than a BMW to produce and Zundapp refused to compromise the product in order to compete in the new markets of the late 1950s.

I am a Zundapp Fool! Let's get 'em running!
