New 250 addition
« on: June 18, 2018, 09:04:45 AM »
 ???My first bikes were MZ's 125 and 250's

Always wanted an ETZ and found this on ebay only 15000
 miles and amazing condition.

Ring Ding Ding

No real performance but it handles very well and it puts a smile on my face

That looks really tidy, I sure there are passionate owners clubs out there which will answer your questions. MZ ‘s were the weapon of choice for the ISDT off road riders, fantastic reliability, almost certainly due to good old over engineering 👍

I missed this one...

Love your MZ, nothing wrong with it, an alternative two stroke that looks simply made and very robust. Great condition and a great find..... 8)

Had one as a dispatch rider in 1988,  slow old thing but never went wrong .dropped it, put diesel in and ran it by mistake drained the tank put petrol in started ok . Fun bike to have one in that condition .

When I ride I have to keep remembering that it is an MZ and not my RD so I don't rev it too much.

Not fast at all but puts a smile on my face and handle very well.

last week I undertook/overtook a bandit on a roundabout bet he was surprised.
