Although the Zschopau marque established its reputation with the general public as the purveyor of unexciting commuter machines, the East German concern had been in the forefront of high-performance two-stroke development in the post-war years. Under the direction of Walter Kaaden, the racing team achieved some notable triumphs against the might of Japanese opposition in the 1960s, and although its Grand Prix effort eventually faded, the firm produced many highly successful ISDT machines in the 1970s. This ISDT Replica has been owned by the current vendor for the past 30 years and has been used for green-lane rides and long-distance trials such as the Land's End. Restored in 2002, when the engine was rebuilt and the cycle parts repainted, the machine is described by the private vendor as in generally very good condition and comes complete with its original tool kit and Swansea V5. A push-on silencer extension is the only notified deviation from factory specification.
