Also known as the Type 969, the CZ 360 was impressively similar to the factory motocross race bike – one that won three straight 500cc World MX Championships thanks to the riding of Paul Friedrichs. Here’s an example that’s been recently restored and is ready for vintage racing.
For more on the 360, check out this profile on Motocross Action Magazine, who (as of last year) suggest that you ‘don’t spend more than $7,000 for a nicely restored example.’ They also suggest that the bike’s flaws included ignition that jumped timing easily and a Jikov carb that wasn’t difficult to flood. But it was clearly fast enough to win!
This example has been restored with a powder coated frame/swing arm/hubs and more, rebuilt engine with a new piston, electronic ignition, and a 36mm Mikuni carb (the original Jikovs were often replaced – better functionality but of course it comes at the expense of originality and value).
