Ok first of all, its not mine so i cant take credit for owning such a beautiful machine. I do moped repair as a little hobby/side business that makes me some extra cash. The owner of this Zundapp saw my ad and called me up.. now im getting this old girl back on the road!
She's in pretty rough aesthetic condition... obviously spent some time next to a tablesaw in her lifetime cause shes covered in sawdust. Theres a nice layer of rust and dust all over pretty much everything, and the paint is faded but i think overall it looks awesome. Makes it look like something out of Indiana Jones.
Its all original, except maybe the seat has been replaced. Here's the kicker... it starts, and runs! All thats wrong with it is it needs a new condenser... i can run it for 5 minutes then it just cuts out, no spark. That, and the wiring is all worn to hell. The insulation practically disintigrates when it touch it, so ill have to replace the wires one by one w/o a schematic.
It starts up super easy... it has a clutch like a motorcycle so you do the opposite of most peds.. you hold the lever _in_, pedal, and then let it out to start. Haha then when you come to stop signs, you have to pull the clutch in to idle. And to get off a stop, you need to slowly let out the clutch while giving it gas. Just like a one speed motorcycle.
Im in love with it... i dont wanna let her go!
