    My Grandfather had this bike shipped home from East Germany in boxes. It spent many years getting moved around before I got a chance to get my hands on it. after all these years I was very happy to find it was only missing a couple of its peaces. I think this old boy is sooo cool.
    Its really neat to get it out for a ride and hear what people have to say about it. I only wish I could find a place to get the missing parts to this cool cruiser.
    This OMZ is a 350 cc 2 stroke 4 speed Full of power and fun to ride.

      Hi i was just wondering what parts you are missing bc i just got my hands on a identical bike. It is complete minus the clutch handle.

      I'ts an MZ. An acronym for Motorradwerk Zschopau which is German for (motorcycle factory at Zschopau), Germany founded in 1906. Try http://www.bikelinks.com/directory/Makes/MZ for parts. Go to http://www.manualedereparatie.info/en/download/mz-bk-350-parts-list.html for parts and repair manuals. It has been reported that the factory has closed and the rights to the name were bought by a Chinese company. Nice bike. I never rode one but I understand they're as fast as some 500's.
