Registration no. AAY726S

One consequence of the Soviet system of centralised planning and direction was that there were no individual motorcycle manufacturers or marques as understood in the West; rather, model names such as 'Dneiper' and 'Ural' were associated with the products of individual factories, but not generally applied until exports began after WW2. Some of these exported motorcycles were badged as 'Cossack' - a name with some resonance in the West - including the 175cc two-stroke single that was a new introduction for 1967. Named 'Voskhod' after the USSR's space rocket, it remained in production essentially unchanged for many years, its main attraction for Western buyers being the bargain basement price. Last taxed to 31st May 1980 and acquired by its late owner in April 2005, this Cossack Voskhod is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. The machine comes with Swansea V5C document. No reserve.
