My DKW now has a new owner

Its with a heavy heart that I part with my DKW NZ 350-1 but I decided to sell it to purchase a MP40 here in the US (MP40's are expensive here due to the registration system having closed down in 1984). Anyhow the new owner will be receiving his bike here before the end of January and I will be infor...

Problem with batteries on a NZ 350-1

Ok guys, my NZ 350-1 has been running strong, been to many reenactment/car shows, but I do have this one issue...it keeps eating batteries. I know its not the magneto because the ignition light turns off after the bike starts up, but it appears to be something else. Any advice? -Thanks Tim in Virginia

Just out of being curious...how much would my restored DKW NZ 350-1 fetch in the european market? Its got a russian seat, repro rubber and a post war tail light, but the rest of it is ww2. I figure 5000-6000 might be right but I might be wrong.

Yes, the manual calls for a tire lever. I just used a modified garden tool and a screw driver to get the tire on and off. It worked this time around but I dont wanna risk damaging the rim the next time I get a flat.

Well, scratch my last inquiry....I was able to find a 3.25x19-3.50x19 inner tube at my local motorcycle shop...for a nice cost of 8 USD. I got home, managed to get the rear tire off (I didnt follow the manual to a T) and managed to get the rim off using some basic tools without damaging the rim or s...

Flat tire in the rear, any help here?

Ok, I was riding my NZ 350-1 from the gym down the street that I usually go to when bam...the back tire goes flat. I walked the bike back to my house and discovered that the inner tube had burst right by the air valve. I have a copy of a DKW manual that calls for lifting the rear fender, removing th...

Well, my bike arrived

And Im both happy and disappointed. Turns out that the battery was corroded, and the positive cable had come off (from the battery). I spent a good half hour cleaning up the corrosion and removing the bad battery. I also noticed that the dipstick for the crank case was missing, leaving whatever to f...
