The unusual lot will be sold during the Mecum motorcycle auction. This is a Czechoslovakian CZ of an unnamed model, assembled in 1973 and has been in its original packaging ever since – even the oiled wrapping paper has survived. The auction will take place at the end of April and will be held in Las Vegas.,
Of all the technical characteristics, auctioneers report only the engine displacement – 400 cubic centimeters and the color – blue. The motorcycle is not only packed, but also half-disassembled: apparently, in this form, the Ceska zbrojovka plant supplied its products overseas.
For what reason, for almost half a century, the motorcycle has not been removed from the wooden box, it is not specified.
Sellers note that the bike belongs to the heyday of the CZ brand and the peak of its popularity in the United States. By the early 70s, Czechoslovak motorcycles were considered one of the best bikes for motocross and enduro in North America, and their riders managed to win many titles – this provided the plant with an impressive level of sales. However, it is not known how much this “new” CZ will be sold for.
