Rikuo 1958

1958 Rikuo RT

The 1950s 750s  Rikuo are basically the Harley-Davidson 45 RL of the early 1930s, and the 1950s 1200s are the Harley-Davidson VL of the same era, but both with updated sheet metal (the updated front fork of the RQ/RT ).

Our Rikuo is 750 cc model RT from 1958, previously own by well know drag racer Patrick Ferguson from Twin Falls, Idaho.

Gnome & Rhône

Nice example of complete restoration by Walton Vintage.
A 1940 Gnome & Rhône AX2 800, 800cc boxer with 2-wheel drive (previously owned by Edward Fruba, icon of Polish veterans motorcycle collectors).
Production of these bikes started for the French army but the Germans took over the factory in 1940 and used the bikes for their own Wehrmacht forces.

Zundapp KS601

Zundapp KS601

One of many KS601s owned by WaltonVintage. This one was fully restored by cousins Pawel Slowik and Grzesiek Osinski in 2006. It is U.S. version of “Green Elephant” with sidecar and all matching numbers.

After World War II, the company gradually shifted to producing smaller machines, for instance, the “Bella” motorscooter, still a relatively heavy machine for its type. The last of the heavy motorcycles, and incidentally also one of its most famous models, was released in 1951: the KS601 (the “Green Elephant”) with a 598 cc two cylinder engine.
From 1957 to 1958 the company also produced the Zündapp Janus microcar.
In 1958 the company moved from Nuremberg to Munich. Subsequently, the company developed several new smaller models, gave up the development of four-stroke engines and only produced two-stroke models. Initially, Zündapp scooters and mopeds sold well, but later sales declined, and in 1984, the company was bankrupt and closed.
