1957 Zundapp Super Sabre

In Germany, Standard by AbhiLeave a Comment

Powered by a 250cc two stroke, the Super Sabre was the top of the line Zundapp at the time.

The US importer was Berliner, and in a ’57 ad in Cycle Magazine they called it “the world’s fastest standard machine in its class” with features like “adjustable swingarm rear suspension, hydraulic shock absorbers, short stroke 6.5 to 1 compression ratio, over 17 horsepower, approximately 80 mph top speed, 100W generator, and 18″ wheels.” They also touted vaguer details like “large brakes, dual sponge seat, western handlebars, and a fast throttle.” Colors that year were black, brick red, and metallic blue, and a “Scramblers Kit” was available with 16″ wheels, knobby tires, a skid plate, and shorter exhaust.

This example has 7,514 miles and the seller says that it’s all original in good running condition. Find this Super Sabre for sale in Lititz, Pennsylvania for $4,500 here on Facebook Marketplace.
