Default Re: Hello from germany

sorry, but there are no relations to the russian motors, the ignition and the clutch are to different.
The zuendapp has 2 coils, one for ignition and one for light on that bike.
the zuendapps only built in 1953 to 54, it's a very late representative in the german pre-WWII motorized bicyle-history. Some years earlier there are the Victoria FM38, REX frontengine, Flink and some more. In 1955 came the new class of Mopeds and no more want to drive that old bicycle engines.
It's possible, that some russian engines find a way to germany, but only in the eastern (german democratic republic) part of this country. Maybe some russian soldiers took them from there home as they was stationed in the cold-war in germany's eastern.
