Lot 162: 1955 Zundapp 198cc Bella 201

Professor Fritz Ehn Motorcycle Museum Collection, Bonhams (30 June 2008)

Zundapp of Nuremberg and later Munich were always noted as makers of durable and high-quality machines, attributes which extended to their �Bella� scooters, the 150cc version of which was first imported into the UK in 1954. The smaller-engined model was found to be both excellent and well-equipped, if a little down on power, a problem rectified in the 200 series by installation of a larger unit derived from the 200S motor cycle, itself used in the I.S.D.T! This two-owner �Bella� is completely to original specification and in original finish, giving a choice to the new owner of restoration or conservation. Battery leakage has damaged the paint on the footboard but otherwise only re-commissioning should be needed. The machine is offered with Austrian 'Typenschein'.
