Hello Mates, I recently acquired a MZ motorcycle and do not know much about it. I knew that I had never seen one before so I had to pick it up. I do not know much about it other than it's in pretty rough shape and almost complete. Now, what do I do with it? It does not have a title to it and I'm not sure the year. I believe it is a 250 but not even sure of that.

Hello

It is a TS 250 with 4 gear engine. Year of production should be about 1973-1975 .

Hi there, bike looks pretty complete. Are you planning a full restoration or just enough to ride and go with the rat/well used look?
What VW do you have? I've a '72 Bay, while my mate has a USA Westy import ('71 I think) and 1200 bug we're currently restoring for his gf.

so you guys on the west side of the pond know a bay is a vw bus that has a splice and 2 pieces of glass in the front window
and a westy is a Westfalia camper

hope i got that correct
