The “Gespann” was MZ’s factory sidecar option for the Silver Star, and this example has just 105 miles!
These bikes are just so rare that you’ll end up having to do a lot of your own work. Thankfully, the 499cc thumper in this Silver Star is built by Rotax, so some mechanics will be familiar with the 34 horsepower heart of this German machine. Just make sure you’re the kind of person that can constantly put up with being asked what kind of bike you’re riding any time you stop! If you’re looking at any MZ, your best option is MZ Riders, by far the best resource out there online.
The seller of this example is light on photos and details, but he says it’s like new. All I can see from the sole photo is that it’s got an aftermarket windshield and the front left turn signal is loose.
Find this MZ for sale here on Craigslist in Long Island, New York for $8,000.
