Sun Plaza Expo 2014

Yesterday night two of my motorcycles (Zundapp K500 and MZ BK 350) got home form an expo in a local mall here in Bucharest. They have been on display for about three weeks next to some other interesting motorcycles.

Doua roti istorice 2013

Anul acesta am reusit sa particip la evenimentul organizat de Retromobil Club Romania* cu doua exponate: IFA BK 350 cu atas Stoye, productie 1955 toamna, si un Zundapp k500 inca ne finalizat produs in 1939.

Fun!

This weekend i managed to make a light trip (about 600km) with the motorcycle. Unfortunately i didn’t find the time to finish everything before i  left so i only had problems with the sparks, carbs and clutch, but overall i managed to get back home so it had a good ending. This is why i did not want to start with the Zundapp until i finish this one, working one two projects consumes a lot of time.

I lost my camera card so this are a couple of photos i stole from motociclism.ro / http://calatoriifestinalente.wordpress.com/ :))

Looking forward for the next trip i make with the bike, this time AFTER i finish it if possible.

No time!

I was unable to make a lot of free time lately but i still managed to install a new glass in the headlight, seal the exhaust a little better so it will not leak and push out smoke from all of the joints, add a light protector to the headlight, put the new tyres on (Made in England, but they look nice) and assemble and align the sidecar.

There is still a lot of work on the sidecar, i have to install the power cables, lights ( don’t have them yet), passenger support bar, windscreen (also missing) and the Stoye logos that just arrived at the post office.

*New seat is also installed, i have to take some better photos next time.

58 Stoye 1 SML

I seem to be very lucky, as i was able to fine a rather good Stoye 1 sidecar, that was rust free and came with a free paint job (in a garage so not the best quality but rather good). When i get some time i will have to take it to a metalworker to get all the dents out of the aluminium and repaint it but for now it’s perfect!

Most of the stripes are done by me, so …they are a bit crooked but they are HAND MADE! 😀

As for the old sidecar, i will probably donate it or give it as a package with the second MZ BK350 that i have to whoever wants to start a BK restoration project in the future.

Sidecar alignment

First time i had so much trouble aligning a sidecar, but it’s finally done. Unfortunately the replica stoye 2 i have is a bit smaller than the original so i will replace it with an original sidecar as soon as i find one.

I found an old fuel tank cock that works a lot better than my replica one. Old gaskets and everything, dose not leak at all. New german products are not what they used to be…
