Step into the past with this meticulously restored Auto-Union DKW NZ 350 motorcycle. This magnificent machine, bearing the serial number 600733, rolled off the production line in 1939, as evidenced by its original identification plate proudly displayed on the front of its frame.
Resurrected to its former glory in a captivating Normandy configuration, this NZ 350 showcases the true factory specifications of its time. From the fork spring cover to the rare VDO speedometer, every detail has been meticulously preserved. The large diameter headlight and Hella taillight, along with the wraparound fenders and SP 12R electrical box featuring the tank-mounted contactor, all add to its authentic charm. The two sheet metal saddlebags provide ample storage space for your journey.
Noteworthy features include the original DKW enamel steel emblem adorning the top of the fork and the Auto-Union stamped bakelite knob, both testaments to its genuine heritage. The standard horn, crafted in black bakelite by Hella, adds the finishing touch to this masterpiece.
Produced from 1938 to 1944, this DKW NZ 350 showcases the excellence of German engineering. Its aluminum engine cases, still in their original form, exude a timeless elegance. The meticulously maintained peripheries, including the rare cyclone filter-equipped carburetor, speak to the commitment to preserving its authenticity.
While this DKW motorcycle may not command the same prices as its Zundapp and BMW counterparts, it presents a remarkable opportunity to enhance any collection. Although it requires some work to be fully operational, this timeless beauty is a testament to the golden age of motorcycling and a joyous invitation to relive history on two wheels.
