1939 Zundapp KS600

Congratulations to Mike Dunn of Riverside for winning Bike of the Month with his 1939 Zundapp KS600. Mike won a $20.00 Beach Burgers gift certificate provided by Beach Burgers and The Scooter Solution.

This was Mike's third time winning Bike of the Month. He won back in June 2013 with his 1937 Zundapp KS500 and in March 2010 with his 1939 Indian Sport Scout. Mike is the owner of Vintage German Motorcycles in Riverside specializing in 1930-1945 motorcycles. Visit his site:

Mike specializes in Zundapps, generally importing them from Germany and restoring them for the American market. He has owned this bike for about 5 months. The bike is fitted with a 1954 Stoye model SM side car. Thousands of KS600s were manufactured for the war, this particular bike is a civilian model.

Although the Zundapp has a similar design to BMW, the two bikes share nothing in common. Both brands competed for Germany's military duties.

Zundapp was founded in 1917. After WWII they focused more on lightweight motorycles and mopeds until the company folded in 1984.

Thanks Mike for bringing this rare bike to our meet. View all the photos in our November Gallery.
