    Hello folks !

    my name is Thomas and i come from the northern of germany. I'm 43 years old and one of my favorite hobbys is restoring of vintage bicycles. Since 2 years i am special interested in motorized bicycles, i am driving a 1950's Victoria bicycle with a 1954 Zuendapp Combimot. This engine has 49 ccm and 1,5 hp and it will run ca. 30 mph. Now i've get an engine-kit at ebay-germany, but there are no spareparts or any informations about this engine. So i haved googled a lot of time and thats what i found, was this community ! Nice to see more motorized bicyclefreaks on this planet !
    Sorry for my simply english, but it's a long time ago since i'ved learned it in school.....

    Thomas

    Hi !
    Thanks for the nice welcome ! I've spended some times in this forum and now i know, how to post some pictures....the zuendapp combimot engine is a 2-stroke with 49 ccm and 1,5 hp at 3800 rpm. This type is a KM50, a very rare engine, most of them in 1954 where built in "Mopeds", and only a few was sold as build-on engines for bicycles. My engine is unrestored and runs quick and perfect as back in '54. This engine version is a chaindrive, also they where available with beltdrive. The bicycle is a 28" Victoria, built in the same time as the engine, i've restored this bike, because it was very rusty.
    I have the hubs itself spoken in, in front a drumbrake and at rear a very old hub from the 1930's, 'cause the original hub from the engine was lost. The tank is brass handicraft from a guy, who is specialized in these things. The most parts of the bicycle are NOS or very good used.

    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.
