Zundapp KS-750 Motorcycle With BMW Sidecar

Here are some images of Aurora/ESCI's 1/9 scale Zundapp KS-750 motorcycle with BMW sidecar. The Zundapp was the most advanced motorcycle of its day. The Zundapp was a very rugged and versatile motorcycle. The shaft drive setup that was powered by a 751cc engine proved to be very dependable with good acceleration with an overdrive giving it a top speed of 60 mph. Along with the BMW 750 the Zundapps rugged reliability was to make it a common sight on all fronts during the war. One of the things that made the Zundapp unique was it's winterizing gear. This was a heating system for the hands and toes which drew heat from the exhaust system which I'm sure was greatly appreciated by its riders especially on the Russian front.
