Last week, we were stunned by the news of the discovery of an antique ČZ racing motorcycle in the US. This strange story has another sequel.
If you missed information about the “čezet” from 1973, which was never turned on and is still stored in the factory conveyor, be sure to read our original article. In short, a racing motorcycle from Česká zbrojovka Strakonice was included in the auction in Las Vegas, which, for some unknown reason, was unloaded for transport after transportation to the port in New York.
Mecom Auctions also did not provide many details, only mentioning the blue color, the coffin-type fuel tank and the engine capacity of 400 cc.
A few things have changed since our first article. The motorcycle has found a new owner, especially at auction. Unfortunately we don’t know who he is but we do know that the new owner paid $13,200 for a racing machine in a unique condition which is about KR285,000 at the current exchange rate.
And with your help, readers, we also know what kind of motorcycle that spent its previous life in a carrier, wrapped in wax paper.
It should be a special ČZ 400 motocross type 981.4 with a 383cc single-cylinder two-stroke3 (sometimes stated as 381 cm3, or 380 cm3) 42 hp.
