... or a blind girl.
is that an Eveready flashlight with wheels?
actually looks like a cool project.
I bet the women throw their panties at you when you ride down the street.
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:

what he said. after the steel wool, polish, and elbow grease you'll be surprised how much good chrome is still there.
I wrote this for irishbikingforum, but I'll share it here too :)
Now THAT is just bitchin!
I totally LOVE the cyl since it looks as if it is running wuthout a head!
Just a hint, buy a second tank cap, this one you have is sought after, MZ's and Simsons are very famos six days enduro machines.
BTW: If you ever get one of them with history for a good price don't wait, don't trade just get it, very rare birds!
extremly collectable when with history
i meant the leading link fork main carrier or whatever it's called, the bit with the shocks attached on top that also holds the mudguard...
for an inspection the mudguard needs to come off...worth checking out :)
a sweet ts though... mine works as a hack - utterly brilliant.
g max !:)
Will check up on that once I dig into it. Right now, funds are extremely limited.
For a no - cost treatment of your exhaust , try this : paint it with used 4-stroke motor oil. It will smoke til the oil burns off but leave a coating of carbon black.
Sounds quite toxicating! Well, the exhaust is the least of my worries. My attention was headed towards the suspension shrouds. I'd like to keep it on the road all the time, but still need to get my tinker-fix!
those are cool bikes. I have a 64 ES150 six days here in Bulgaria, found it & an old Tatran scooter (CZ made) in a garage last summer. I ride the snot out of the Tatran, were fixin up the MZ for Poly to ride.
I need to see some pictures of that one Doug, I love those offroad MZs!
So today I sorted the electrics, made the error of ASSUMING, something belonged somewhere. So I blindly connected the earth to the hotwire, essentially putting a wire across the batterypoles.
After I realised my brainfart I started cleaning up the harness, so now I have a fully functioning harness again.
The brakelight is slow to come on, I'm told this is the nature of 6v electrics, does this hold any truth? I don't see why.
That mad hatter flashlight bike is growing on me - you are in the grips of a very curious addiction - I know that MZ two strokes are revered in Limeyville but not much here. Still, based on your posts I now get it. Great bike story.
Thank you for the kind comments!
I want to refurbish the engine so I know the condition of what I have. Therefore I've begun making the MZ special tools. Most I could probably do without, but I've never done an overhaul before, so I want it to go as smooth as possible. That, and I have some spare time at the lathe these days :)
First tool, made for driving in one of the gearbox bearings and it is also used for driving out a gearbox shaft. They will all be made close to original spec.
+ 1 DONT TOUCH THE PATINA !
How do you say FUGLY in its native language ?
According to google, karedé.
