Lot Details
From a Prominent European Collection,
c.1970 Zündapp 49cc Sports
Frame no. 5537356
Engine no. 3646921
Germany's premier motor cycle maker at one time, Zündapp was always noted for high quality, innovative design and sporting success with bikes ranging from 750cc down to the 50cc machines with which they were multiple world record breakers. Zündapp's biggest sellers in the 1970s were their fast and robust Sports 50s, a class which has now become very collectable.

This kickstart-equipped, beam-frame lightweight sports motorcycle is believed to be in original condition with no notable alterations; it has been kept in museum storage for many years. Noted for its performance, handling and with good brakes, this little Zundapp is worthy of careful attention.
