Ardie 500 CC
Dear Folks,
I bought and drove an Ardie 500CC (at least I was told that's what it was) in Stockholm Sweden in 1964 at the age of 16 years old. It was my first bike so I will never forget my experience of driving it, but I never knew much about it. I drove it from Stockholm through Sweden, Denmark, Belgium and into Germany before I couldn't stand it's problems (bad kickstart, clutch, drive chain, etc)anymore. I ended up selling it to another American (who was 14 yrs old)who drove it away intending to go back to Sweden with it. I never knew anything else about it and was wondering if there was any info available. I later realized I probably should have died many times from the things I did learning to drive it, but it ended up making me a lifelong motorcycle rider. If I could get a picture/description of the bike it would mean a lot to me-David Seber

Good day I am French, and I just bought a pool of broadcasting corporations IE motorcycle 125 RBZ. I am the fourth owner of this motorcycle. It has a history. The first owner stole this motorcycle, which was hung on a German tank during the Second World War. However during their use it was changed with French pieces of motorcycle. I have several things to ask you: Can identify the motorcycle to you as well 125 RBZ? (I it transmissions of the photos of my motorcycle). Is what the 125 RBZ in a military version exists? Do you have the technical description of this motorcycle, so that I can take it apart, in order to clean it? Do they have photos of 125 RBZ? Have you an address, or I can buy the pieces for the 125 RBZ I would like this motorcycle as on its origin to shift, and for necessary I your assistance and your knowledge. In advance thank you for your assistance and long life for your club. Yannick

A good place to research further information would be the Ardie section of Bikelinks

1928 Ardie
The 1928 Ardie that you have a picture of (Ardie-1928.jpg) was the bike I owned in 1976. It is actually a 1929 TM500 Jubilee model.

Best regards,
Scott Carroll

I was stationed in Schweinfurt during the years 1974 - 1976 at the old army airfield, (Conn Barracks?). I bought an 1928 Ardie with a 500cc JAP engine for DM500, from a motorcycle collector in downtown Schweinfurt. The bike was in a basket and several boxes when I got it, (some assembly required!). I put it together and rode it for the best part of a year before the engine seized. If anyone is interested, I still have some old pictures of it in a box in the attic, I could probably scan and email. my home email address is scott.jane at homed o t c o m Bst rgds,

Here are some Photos that you might find interesting. The Ardie leaked oil so bad you would have thought it designed by the British! The photo with the Polizei was at a gas station on the autobahn. you can see the head lamp of the Ardie in the foreground. The Polizei kept telling me that the bike belonged in a museum not on the autobahn. I have also included a shot of a 250 MZ trophy sport that I owned and rode while in Germany. I don't know what year it was. Bst rgds, -- Scott...

Hi, my grandfather used to race this bike before WW2. His name was Conrad Thumshirn, he was from Nurenburg Germany. He drove Motorcycles during the war, delivery messages to the front lines. He was lost somewhere around the russian front. He also had a brother that raced the Ardie bikes.
If you have any info on either brother I would appreciate any news.
Thank you -- Eddie Buehler -- jjjbuehler at msnd o t c o m
