A very modern looking
piece of machinery kindly sent in by
The frame hails from Germany and built in 1984 by Michael Datzmann Senior
for his son Michael Datzmann Junior.
Senior himself had been European 500cc Grasstrack Sidecar Champion many times, so was certainly well experienced in the field.
The Speedway machine is seen here housing a horizontal G.M Motor with
leading link front fork and a very modern designed type of Frame. Note
the large top tube which also acts as a fuel tank.
The picture (Right) is of the Datzmann Longtrack machine that had been inspired by the speedway machine. Again housing a G.M engine, this machine also boasts a monoshock rear suspension.
