Here’s a bike I’ve never heard of before, which means I’m obligated to share it with you! Meet the REX KL35, also known as the CycloThrust.
REX was a German firm based out of Munich. They made mopeds and bicycle engines between ’48 and ’64, presumably making this bike one of the last ones out of the factory. It’s hard to find information on this bike, but it’s powered by a 50cc two stroke which was paired with two carbs and dual exhaust. This specific example (VIN: 455061) isn’t cosmetically perfect, but it’s claimed to run nice and the electrical components work.
Find it for sale in Boise, Idaho with a BIN of $3,500 or best offer
