Zundapp was able to sell about 130,000 examples of the Bella scooter between 1953 and 1964. Engine options were a 150 (146) or 200 (198) – here’s an original example of the latter.
The bigger engine wasn’t introduced until May of 1954. It was good for 10 horsepower. Other improvements over the model run include a 12 volt electrical system and a one-sided leading link fork (which replaced telescopic units). This example (VIN: R118628) has both of those upgrades. It is said to be in original condition and it’s got an impressive 19,427 miles on the odometer. The seller says this is a daily rider that returns 80 miles per gallon while having the potential to hit 55 miles per hour. It has a Buco windshield and Harley-Davidson saddle bags. Everything is said to work and the pistons and rings were recently replaced.
