'Also made by the Csepel works, the Pannónia motorcycles had a certain similarity with Jawa products. The 247cc (sic) two-stroke was built with one and two cylinders and was also exported to European countries.' – Tragatsch.

Located on the eponymous island in the River Danube, Csepel built motorcycles under its own name from 1932 until the early 1950s when the Tunde, Panni, Danuvia, White, and Pannónia brands were added to the portfolio. The most famous of these is Pannónia, which offered a range of air-cooled two-strokes that remained essentially unchanged until production ceased in 1975. Pannónia motorcycles were sold throughout the Eastern Bloc countries but were, and still are, a rare sight in the West.

This example of Hungary's last and most successful motorcycle was imported as an original and essentially complete 'barn find' in December 2016, having stood idle for some considerable time. Miklos purchased the machine from one Jerry Deeks of Eastern Block Motorcycles, and immediately embarked on a no-expense-spared restoration, which is detailed by a thick sheaf of bills in the accompanying file. A NOVA declaration has been made and customs duties paid. A wonderful opportunity to acquire a rare Hungarian motorcycle that is likely to be unique at any gathering.
