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.

    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.
