Today in the Ardennes/Eifel

Long time since I have posted in this thread.

This weekend we have the small meeting of our Dutch friends with their Wartime machines.

Due to un-forseen circumstances this year we have only 2 x Zundapp KS750, 1 X BMW R75 and an ex military Chang Jiang CJ750.

Temperature today is around -7c.

Suspension and ride comfort

Hello David, thanks for the pictures, these are very cool machines. I'm curious about how the Zundapp and BMW machines ride on rough terrain or bad roads. Do they have a suspension on the sidecar or rear wheel? I have a newer Harley outfit with a rigid sidecar wheel and definitely feel a lot of input from that on a bad road. Thanks, Dave

The rear end of the bike is rigid, The sidercar has a split torsion tube running in the rear sidecar frame tube. This provides 3-4 inches of travel on the sidecar wheel. The boat itself is suspended on a pair of half-leaf springs, the ride is OK on rougher roads and a bit bouncy in the rough stuff!

I've been reading your posts about the Ardennes tours with great interest. I live in London and I've got a Ural Gear Up 2wd that myself and a mate took to Germany and Belgium basically touring Bastogne and many other of the war sites. In fact we laid a Cross of Remembrance at the Malmedy crossroads site.

We went this time last year with snow on the ground and freezing cold. I loved the area and would definately go back at some point. I've got some phots somewhere - I'll try to dig them out.

Cheers

Rob

Very nice ride . I had read the the hole topic very interesting. The bike with read wheels looks like a early m-72 but the frame no.The first seire m-72 was very similar to bmw r 71 the frame was identical. I have a friend how has a m-72 from 1943 original. Contrar to the popular beleve the r 71 was not a military bike it was neved made for the army in order to replace the bmw r12. The bmw r 71 and r 61 were civilian luxury bike modern for the time and expensive, in today money it will cost something like 35000 usd. The army request was from the beginind for a bike with the caracteristic of bmw r75 and zundapp ks 750. BMW and Zundapp develop in parallel the 2 bikes. Zundapp ks 750 being considerate better suited all so from the better front forks wich handles much better off-road the the bmw r 75 front fork.In time engine from bmw r75 was more easy to mentain then the engine from zundapp ( you can adapdt diferent parts for bmw r75 engine more easly then for the zundapp ks 750 ) .

I have a question did somebody has for sale a zundapp ks 600 or 750 or a abmw r 12 frame even in bad shape ?
Many thanks.

Don't think so, the "Je maintiendrai" lion does have sword in it's right paw and arrows in it's left paw





"Je maintiendrai" translate to something as "I will maintain "

Should anyone happen to do a recovery let me know..... have trailer will drive.

Hey Don...that was an old Russian Rig I found over outside San Diego a couple years ago. The owner thought it was a BMW, he acquired it when he bought some property. I have the guys phone # somewhere. I think he was pretty "proud" of the hulk...said he turned down a $2000.00 offer a couple years earlier. With that in mind I never persued the matter any further.
Everything there was pretty rough. Not sure of the actual value. Definately more than I was willing to "bite off".

Update: Don, I deleted the guys phone number but I dug through my old e-mails and found the guys E address....he was adament that the whole pile went together, wouldn't sell just the hack frame. I had asked him about selling the frame seperately a couple years ago. PM me if you wish, and I'll send you over the guys e-mail address. He may have had a change of heart in the past couple years.

more photos:


The "Hack" wheel was there too:
