    Maybe an unusual question I have. Well to start it off, I have a friend who is a computer illiterate motorcycle enthusiast. Great around tools and bikes though. He came across a bike that has stumped even that Mr Knowitall. Here is where I got to ask you to forgive my lack of knowledge in this area. He gave me this information “leading link” front end Enduro and it has a 125 cc Sachs engine.

    Oh yeah it is a Hercules motor cycle. Maybe near mid 50’s

    That is all that he gave me to go on. Now that is all said and done, I was wondering if you could lead me in a direction so that I can find some information on this particular bike. If you could help me out, I could get some pictures of it in the near future to add to your site. Just a thought. — Joe — diamond-joe at

    I have a 125 cc bike and I’m searching for an electric diagram for it. It’s a Sachs engine, from the Dutch army, any other plans can help me also. —Thanks— De_smalle at

    It’s a Hercules bike, from the Dutch army, I’ll give you some details …

    – the ignition is completely surrounded by metal so water can’t get to it.

    – on both ends of the steer there are orange lights.

    – the wheels are from Sachs, also the engine (125cc, 5 speed, kick-starter) is from Sachs.

    My English isn’t that good, sorry if there are any mistakes in this message

    I am an Italian collector, I own a Sachs 125 cc 1969 cross country (boondocker) and I’ll be happy to know if someone has original commercial depliants or papers about. Thank you — Lamberto Poggi — Roma Italy — e-mail polinnia at

    I have two Boondockers, one is pretty much new, street legal, with nifty old German head light, plus a spare bike, that was raced, I am up in Calgary Canada, I am currently culling my herd of bikes as I have a pretty cool son who takes up most of Dad’s time and space for now. I am looking for about 750.00 for all of it (Canadian). Tim — 2mantractor at

    Hi, I have had this 1966 Sachs for about 4 years and finally got most of it restored, with a couple of parts I need to track down, it was given to me by friends in Northern Ca. and I hauled it here when we moved about 2 years ago finally found this web site through a friend who was quite impressed with the photos I had of the bike and he really was the one who came across this web site, anyway I have a copy of the sales literature sheet on the bike and also apparently, It is a Hercules style in which Joe Berliner put the Earles style front end on the Hercules Bike and also has a 125 Sachs engine on it which is clean as A whistle, I had it up and running after redoing the frame up restoration and haven’t even ran it yet because the gas valve was leaking like a sieve, so I really haven’t had much time to work on it since getting this job where I am working 6 days a week, If you have any info or even might know who I could get a hold of who might I sure would appreciate it very much. — Sincerely, Sandy — billnsandy at

    I have a 1967 Sachs Boondocker (I think) that I would like to get running and restore. Does anyone know where parts, manuals, etc may be found as well as a restorer who might be familiar with this bike?

    Thanks, Tom

    I am amazed to find something about this brand of motorcycle. In 1969 my father and uncle bought, and still own, 2 of the 125 Enduro models. Both bikes were used for enduro racing until 1972 and were returned to stock. They have less than 600 miles each. My dad still has all of the original paperwork and manuals. They start on the first kick even today. I am interested in finding more about these bikes as to date I have found nothing. Thank you. Ben Kuhn — bkuhn at

    I bought a 69 Sachs Cross Country 125cc new and have had it ever since. I rode and raced(enduro and motocross) it for 3 years. My wife rode it for a few years then my son and finally my daughter. I used to be a mechanic at a dirt bike shop in Burbank, CA in the early 70s and my specialty was the Sachs engines and gearboxes. I tried to start mine today but found the point spring was broken. If I can’t find a new set of points I’ll use an old set I have. I have lots of parts for the Sachs engines, cranks, gears, cases, cylinders etc. I don’t have pistons or rings.
