2005 MZ 1000 S – Used 2005 1000 S at Motorcyclist Magazine

2005 1000 S 2005 MZ 1000 S In 1907, a German company known as Dampf-Fraft-Wagen, or DKW, started out producing engines for bicycles. In the 1920s, DKW began producing 2-stroke engines for motorcycles, and their designs went on to dominate all forms of motorcycle racing from 1922 to 1936, winning a total of forty-five championships. In 1956, DKW changed its name to Motorradwerk Zschopau, or MZ. Due to wartime conditions, MZ continued to produce engines and bikes in East Germany, but it was later purchased by Hong Leong Group out of Malaysia; in 2004, the world was introduced to the MZ 1000S in full production. The overall look and feel of the 2005 MZ 1000 retains much of its European heritage, ...

2005 MZ 1000S – Motorcycle USA

2005 MZ 1000S Grosser Bruder You may not realize it but MZ has been around for a very long time. In fact, the German company has been around since the beginning of the motorcycle itself, first as an engine supplier beginning in 1907. Then known as DKW (Dampf-Kraft-Wagen), the company began producing complete motorcycles in 1925. DKW annually produced 60,000 of its 2-stroke powered motorbikes between 1925 and 1930, becoming one of the first manufacturers to build motorcycles on a truly mass-production level and growing to be what the company claims was the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturer at the time. DKW enjoyed amazing success in competition right out of the gate, winning ...

2005 MZ 125 Supermoto –

Little motards aren’t just for 16 year olds. Little motards aren’t just for 16 year olds. Inspired by MO’s entertaining and informative hack take on the 2002 Daytona 955i, I’ve decided to share my experiences with another bike that gets forgotten in the shuffle of KawiYamaHonZuki. No liter bikes here, nosireebob, just little German Motards. The MZ 125-SM to be exact. Sure every one expounds, and rightly so, the virtues of buying a used bike first, but with a little smart shopping dealer leftovers can be just as good a deal. Witness Sean’s theft of a D955i. So here’s my experience buying my first bike, and riding 3500 miles in my first five months of ownership. ...

1990-94, 125cc w/c t/s single, 12hp 70mp2h 55mpg 280lb Rather odd chopper that harks back to the days when the Fantic moped ruled the earth. Derestricted motor runs to 27 horses but doesn’t lose reliability. Hard used ones needed attention to bore/piston around 20,000 miles but 30k ain’t beyond the realms of possibility. A sure sign of an engine about to lose it all is the gearbox jumping out of gear and old ones develop a somewhat mystical reverence to their electrics. Handling ain’t that bad given the custom stance, though quite a few were thrown down the road. APRILIA 125 EUROPA 1992-94, 125cc w/c t/s single, 12hp 75mph 55mpg 250lb Neat, naked stroker that can be derestricted to ...

MZ ES250/2 Trophy Rebuild – Part 3 Lots of bits have come back, ready for assembly on Phil Speakman’s MZ rebuild. So he ventures into the Devil’s Kitchen and proves that you should never leave a man alone with a tube of strong adhesive. The first parts to return to me were the lovely gloss black powder coated frame components and to borrow a phrase from the BBC’s John Simpson, I counted them all out and counted them all back in again. But where to put the bicycle parts so that I can start to reassemble them again? The Adler is in lots of carefully wrapped shiny bits in the back bedroom, which it shares with the new bathroom suite, to be fitted in May or June… The ...

Like that e.g. the TS250 was starting from 1975 in series for the cultivation of a side car intended, starting from 1976 came the TS250/1 particularly improved for the side car enterprise. The small series The two smaller models are up to the capacity among themselves identically and differ from their predecessors ES150/1 and ETS150 only by slight changes at chassis and optics. Engine, drive, rear suspension, frameworks and different other parts were perfectly alike. A new development was the Telegabel (developed from the ETS fork), the entire front portion ...

MZ ETZ 250 – Part One – Classic Motorcycle Guide – RealClassic.co.uk

MZ ETZ 250 – Part One Rick Howell was looking for cheap thrills to take on long distance trials. A classic MZ and the motorcycling club fit the bill. The MZ ETZ 250 cost me Ј250. If it wasn’t being sold by a friend I might have tried to beat the price down to Ј200, but it had some MOT and road tax, so we were both fairly happy with the figure. I saw it as a potential long distance trialler as there is a small group of dedicated MZ riders in the long distance trials world. MZ ETZ250 Paul had used it as a commuter, and the road from commuter to long-distance trialler is a long, rutted, slippery one! The MZ sat forlornly on the side of the road outside his house, unloved, gently ...

2004 MZ 1000S – Motorcycle USA

2004 MZ 1000S MZ 1000S: Exclusive first test It wasn’t the perfect first date. I certainly wasn’t blinded by her looks and quite frankly had some issues when it came to certain manners. Consulting with my well-worn copy of Men are from mars, women are from America, I was submissive and forgiving for our next rendezvous. We met at a wonderful little place near my house, where a knowledgeable friend administered some therapy, and from there our relationship blossomed. A weekend away in Virginia, some late-afternoon trips along the Blue Ridge Parkway, and the shaky start to our relationship soon faded into the hazy blue smoky mountains of my North Carolina home. Even the wife was ...

MZ ES250/2 Trophy Rebuild – Part 2 Phil Speakman has stripped down his MZ, ready to start restoring it to glory — which involves lots of decisions. To shot blast, sand blast or vapour blast? What sort of finish to opt for? And does copper really have the devil in it…? Once the strip down of my 1972 MZ ES250/2 Trophy was completed, it was time to outsource the work. In the past I have paint stripped, shot blasted, wire brushed and re-sprayed and yes; even powder coated from home. But not any more. The last time I did any re-spraying and saw the state of the garage afterwards I swore it would be my last. The filler and rubbed down primer dust gets everywhere, as does the overspray. ...
