    I had one once. Great fun.

    I won't bore you with pictures of rubbed down swingarms, ghastly electrics etc, but I put the finishing touches to the old MZ today with a rather fetching ammo box for my newly aquired (from a forum member, cheers David) full original toolkit. It's original place under the side panel is occupied by the electronic ignition black box. Work done includes new brake line, pads and Chinese copy Suzuki Gn125 master cylinder, seat cover, replacement rear wheel, new tyres, rubbing down and repainting odds and sods with whatever paint I had in the garage.
    Worst bodge found? - one rear wheel bearing outer race was spinning n the hub, although someone had 'rectified' this by peening the alloy around it to hold it in place.

    That looks a credit to you, paintwork has come up well. Plus that new silencer sets it off well

    Thanks Steve,
    It has scrubbed up well .
    The paint now shines but has plenty of chips and marks. Part of it's history and I don't think it justifies a repaint, so it's staying as it is.
    The silencer came from Germany, about £40 new. It's ready for it's first MZ rally in September

    Very nice indeed.
    I do like that.

    Can I join the dibs queue if you come to sell it please ?
    I think I'm now second, behind peeping.

    I can see an MZ would be perfect for pottering around your country lanes and negotiating your gravel drive Dave .

    I am currently rewiring a rare MZ Simson Enduro for a pal; he is going to sell it afterwards although it's only 50cc and 45mph top speed, so maybe not.

    .......and you can't have your toolkit back.......:-)

    Phil.

    I always had a hankering to get another MZ, but no room in the garage presently; so I must resist, I must resist

    Don't get me started! Great bikes. Such a shame the company went belly up.

    I've just been out to the garage just to check that I can't get another bike in; and I can't !

    That is after buying an Asgard Secure Motorcycle Shed last year, I filled that up almost straight away, so I simply haven't got the room. But I do like this - a lot.
