Munch Mammoth
1300TTS-E jw62k
In answer to the 2006 enquiry re. Mammoths in Australia, there were two imported in 1974,a 1200cc tourer, and the super sports 1300. As a journalist,I road tested the the 1300 rocket-ship for a motorcycle magazine in 1974. What blast that was! I belive there was just one other imported later, the price three times that of the new R90S BMW, which I also road tested, but for a different publication. Lester Morris,Sydney.

NSU TT 1200, auto engine, used in the Munch Mammoth
NSU TT1200
I have an NSU TT1200 auto engine that I bought from a salvage yard in Van Nuys CA. in 1967. The car was new, (262 miles on odometer), front end total, rear engine perfect.
Never used, it has been stored in a container in the High Desert of SoCal most the time since.
I wondered if it might be useful to a Munch Mammoth owner?

Suggest you try NSU resources for that one, assuming it runs the same clutch as fitted to the auto engine.. Ed.

I am writing a book about the history off Friedel Münch with his motorcycles. Do you have some information about Floyd Clymer and George Bell? These 2 man made it possibele that Münch could build his Mammoths. Information about Bell is hard to get. Maybe in American Magazines of the 70ths.

Cannot say whether any were imported to Australia, and the bikes are no longer being made. For prices of classic motorcycles, try our page on valuations. Ed.

In regards to wanting info on Munch motorcycles, I have a friend who owns several.
He owns the 67 Indian Scout replica (engine was actually built by Munch) it is a one-off showbike that was used to drum up interest at the cycle shows, then Floyd Clymer died before the project went into production. (The same bike pictured on your website)
My friend Dave also owns a Munch Titan 1800cc supercharged engine.
He sold Dave Leno his Munch.
At present I believe he owns a total of 8 Munchs.
Dave has self-published a book, more of an autobiography, which highlights his quest for Munch motorcycles. It of course has much non-Munch material, but is an interesting read for "gear-headed" individuals. Several Munch pictures. Cost is cheap, about $20 US, plus a small postage fee. Dave is not online, I try helping him sell some books.
Let me know if you are interested and I'll let you know the details.

Hi Guys
Is there any further update on Fridel Munchs famous Mammoths Ive seen the write ups on the new model in magazines it seem awsome There are two 8o's models here in Melbourne Australia One is a fuel injected and the other is a twin Webber.I remember them from the motor show when they were imported during that time(not sure which year) Ill try and send some pics if i can find them Do you have any links to the new model?  --  Regards  --  Muz  -- razmuz at


Looks like Munch is at it again. Now it is a 1998cc, 260hp monster called the "Mammut 2000". Cosworth cylinder heads, aluminum alloy heads,  German Schwitzer turbocharger, 218 ft lb of torque, and the biggest, baddest, most powerful motorcycle on the planet. They should start delivering the first ones around May 1 of 2000. The price?  Around $82,000 USd... Did I mention "most expensive" bike?  -- Sheldon biker at cwizardimg

I was researching the Munch Mammoth (Munch Mammut) from the 1960's recently and came across this URL which I thought you might like as a link:
