Have recently purchased what i thought was a DKW Enduro from california – German DKW club thinks it might be a ZU – Eng. # 9015368 / frame # 427004170 – possibly built 1960-1973?
Have you checked that it's not one marketed as a Sachs Hercules? Do you have a pic of the manufacturers plate?
Many thanks prompt response.
Just found out from a German website that in all probability it is in fact a Hercules with a Sachs engine first imported into the US in 1970. So urgently seeking Hercules / Sachs / DKW badges / transfers that would be appropriate to this model. f you know of any likely source would appreciate further response.
Have just acquired what I assumed to be a restored DKW Enduro â€“ recently imported from California â€“ believe it was built somewhere between 1969 & 1972. The engine # is: 9015368 and frame # on the headstock is 427004170. One German DKW club that I contacted said it wasn’t a DKW but possibly could have been manufactured by Zweirad-Union. Another source said that in all probability it is a DKW Hercules K125GS imported into the US between 1970-71 with a Sachs 5 speed engine & DKW ignition. On that basis I am now trying to source some DKW / Hercules / Sachs badges or decals appropriate to the model. Any assistance you can offer would be most appreciated.
