Bought on Bike-urious – 1955 Zündapp Suburbanette

In Bought on Bike-urious by AbhiLeave a Comment

Last year, I was excited to share that reader Rudolf E. had acquired a Rickman Metisse Street Scrambler that was previously featured on Bike-urious. This time around, he’s picked up the Zündapp Suburbanette that Tim Huber shared at the beginning of the year!

These were quite rare (Tim said that “just 370 Suburbanette examples left the factory in Nuremberg over its two years of production”), so I’m glad that a Bike-urious reader was able to pick it up.

In Rudolf’s words: It turned out be in good running condition beneath all that patina. The sellers were of German descent and very friendly.

He enjoys it on the road as well!

I bought it because of the patina and because it is such a rare scooter. I was in the market for a Zündapp R201, and never dreamed that a Suburbanette would come my way.
