New Pre 65 Bike

Recommended Posts

 

Just got my 1964 Hercules K 50 Sprint ready,it stood for lightyears in the shed.The last weeks i worked on her and tryed to put all legal pre 65 components on the bike.I do not restored it,because it was too good.Only changed the non legal components.It is very light,rides well,revs well,stears well.Technical data:1964 Hercules K 50 Sprint,49,9 ccm,5,3 BHP,5 speed.I thinking to ride it in the 2017 Scottish pre 65(what do you think is she legal)if i get permission to ride.Comments welcome,so waiting for it.post-8037-0-42926200-1452953316_thumb.jpgpost-8037-0-37771900-1452953406_thumb.jpgpost-8037-0-01398200-1452953471_thumb.jpg

Hi Mike,

 

Looks very similar to the 98cc Zundapps that we saw first in the 1964 St Cucufa trial in the works team led by Gustav Franke.

 

Enjoy.

Hi Micha!! You will enjoy the 50cc, although in some sections like Pipeline 2, Sleubhaich, Caolasnacoan... maybe you struggle a bit. I have done 3 years the event in a 175cc and it is fun, even this year will use a 175cc.

 

In 2006 there was a Japanese guy Kojiro Mori, that rided with a 90cc pre65 Honda:
