    OK, Here's another mystery bike...

    Here's Don as a young man with his 2-stroke bike he thinks was German made. Anyone have a guess to the maker's name?

    My guess is NSU...or maybe DKW...

    Here's a link to German motorcycles of years gone by:

    Looks like a Jawa to me but that would make it Czech not German.

    I guess the enclosed chain should be a strong clue...

    Kurt, you are correct! Notice the correction :-)

    Bob, you and Ima4nr . . . win the fuzzy kazoo!!!

    It was a Zundapp 250 or 200!! It's been so many years and motorcycles I truly can not remember which. But for it's time it was "fast" and fun!! Notice the leather jacket?? That was ATGATT in those days!!

    That is a "Zundapp"!
    Probably a 125ccm or 250ccm. My guess would be a 1959 through 1964.
