Nicknamed the TV Lamp due to the headlight (or the Iron Pig due to the generally ugly looks), the MZ Trophy ES was a quick seller in East Germany due to a lack of competition and a focus on practicality. 1967 brought the ES 250/2, which is what you see in front of you. Cheaper than the 250cc competition, these were one of the few bikes available in the Iron Curtain that allowed for a sidecar.

The 250cc engine is a one cylinder, two stroke that produced 19 horsepower. With a four-speed transmission, this MZ was capable of 65 miles per hour and about 45 miles per gallon.

This example is claimed to be in decent shape with 19,135 miles, though there are some cosmetic issues. It’s equipped with rare factory options of a heavy duty handlebar and steering damper, and the seat covers (I’ve never seen these seats before on a Trophy) are made of leather.
