Catawiki’s goal is to make special objects universally available. Our weekly auctions feature thousands of unusual, rare, and exceptional objects you won’t find in just any store. This piece of history was fully restored this year down to the very last bolt. This was done by a specialist in Russian motorcycles.
It has special options:
-headlight dimming cover
-search light on sidecar
-large and small shovel + axe
-wooden platform in sidecar
Lots of driving fun with the braked sidecar, reverse gear, electrical ignition and modern carburettors: in other words, easier to start and more economical driving.
It’s in the Netherlands. Shipping abroad is not a problem.
This bike was used as a police bike in the Soviet Union from 1970 until 1999. It has stood still since 2016 in a private collection of a police officer in Moldova.
Subsequently, no expense or effort was spared during the restoration with use of only original parts; it’s now better than new.
This is a very reliable motorcycle.
It always starts, it drives and shifts smoothly.
Parts that commonly wear out have been replaced by parts that do not:
-new gaskets and bearings
-new European wiring and electrical components
-piston rings with a chrome-coated frame, blasted and powder-coated.
-all bolts, nuts, etc, blasted and galvanised
-new brake linings
-the block and gearbox have been revised.
Viewing and a test drive are not a problem. 43472409
