350NZ kickstarter

My kick starter has been 'jumping' and 'jamming', so recently I have to jump start the bike, not easy with a sidecar! Took the casing off today and notice the first two teeth on the segment are broken. Can the segment be reversed, or will I have to replace the whole thing? thanks, Chris broken teeth...

Sidecars

Hi all, my apologies for lack of contact, playing with my jeep in 2017! But I have been researching my 1939 350NZ and discovered the sidecar is a 1938 Simard Standard 13. Simard were a French manufacturer based in Lyon. So I wonder who joined a 1939 German motorcycle with a 1938 French sidecar? My r...

Re: Feultap / Benzinhahn DKW NZ ??

Hi all,

If it helps this is the fuel tap on my 1939 350NZ. I believe it's original - and it's leaking again! (problem is, so does my Amal carb, so unless I disconnect the fuel line my garage stinks to high heaven of petrol in the morning!) :x

cheers,

Chris

Re: 350NZ saddle bags

Thanks guys,

I've also been recommended www.oldtimerteile-s.de for the brackets, but i will use Oldtimer Garage for the leather bags. I am told by Frank that metal boxes did not appear until '41/42.

cheers,

Re: Normandy DKW meeting

Hi Lolo,

regrettably I cannot come to France in September, but please contact me. I am researching the history of my 1939 NZ 350 with side-car, which was first registered in Laon, Picardie in 1950. Your help will be very welcome!

thanks,

Chris
