    MZ ETZ250, 1988: pretty rare in my country, not so much in Europe:

    My son and I - separately - have toured the length and breadth of our country on this thing, though we have a variety of bigger machines. This is far from the least comfortable, though it is really gutless. Gutless but seemingly unburstable.

    My and two other MZ TS250 circa 1990, these bikes did quite a lot of miles between them especially the blue one which to owner took to Spain and Portugal on one trip and the Czech Republic on another, the faired one made several trips to France.

    I may get this one going real soon. A Puch "twingle". It did run about 9 months ago and just needs some TLC.

    Not sure on this one either. It turns over but I haven't messed with it.

    One is for fuel, the other is for mixing oil. They are separate and the bike has an injection pump.

    My European two stroke:

    [​IMG]

    1970-ish (not sure of exact year) Maico 250 square barrel. It's still a work in progress. It's still a work in progress - both wheels need to be rebuilt with new spokes and bearings, chain and sprockets need to be replaced, steering head bearings need attention, etc. Runs great though!

    It's been languishing in storage recently because I just haven't had any time for it. I was thinking of selling it and rolled it out to take some photos, but now I don't think I want to sell it. :D

    Dont sell anything unless you just plain have to to literaly LIVE. :wink:
    Selling for any other reason can lead to regrets down the years to come, trust me i have been there.
    Looks a great project as it is and simple stuff to be done on it, just tick off the jobs one at a time before you know it you will be all up and finnished.
