The Zündapp K800 was an innovative design, seen in the horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine with shaft drive. Power output is 26 horsepower, with rear-wheel power driven by a four-speed manual transmission. Used throughout the Second World War, Zündapp K800s are considered among the most beautiful of the early pre-war motorcycles.

Offered here is a matching-numbers example, recently restored by a previous owner. All parts are believed to be original, and the K800 presents in excellent condition. Although the early history is unknown, records of the previous German owner are included on file, notably its old German registration. Beautifully restored and in excellent condition, this Zündapp is not one to overlook.
