    Looks do-able though!

    Might be useful source of spares:

    Nice photos, thanks!

    I've only seen one other other than my own Zundapp 601 and it doesn't run... yet.
    Damn bikes are so rare it's hard to find anything to stare and compare with.

    This one goes to a cool dude!
    Don, thanks man!
    You hosted me and helped me work on my project.
    Plus gave me the grand tour of your humble abode.
    Here's to you brother! (Say thanks to your lovely wife too!).

    Man. Zundapp has fins where others merely were thinking about fins. Zundapp has fins on the fins. Outrageous. :D

    It's a cool running machine, what do you think of the rack and Bates seat?

    That's a beautiful machine, Don. Truly a labor of love to keep something special looking and running like it deserves.

    Thanks Kip and Al,
    I told the previous owner I'd get it running or sell it back to him.
    It was more of a promise that turned into a responsibility.
    Hell of a challenge and I never knew for certain if it would run until I fired it up.
    Amazing piece of engineering, what an education. I'd do another if I could. Just not that many of them out there.
