Needs Some Work – 1972 IZH Planeta 3

In Russia, Standard by AbhiLeave a Comment

IZH was best known for making the AK47 assault rifle, though they did have a civilian division that also made cars and motorcycles – production of the latter started in 1927. Here’s an example of one of their most successful bikes, the Planeta.

IZH Planeta - Gauges

The Planeta 3 was built between 1962 into the late 80s. It also had a sport model with 32 horsepower, but this base model put down 20 from a 350cc engine. I love the rubber coated grab rail in the middle of the seat.

IZH Planeta - Tank

This example will need some work because it’s been stored as a display bike for years but wasn’t drained of fluids. It has just 17 miles and looks very nice, but I hope you like tinkering! Find this IZH Planeta for sale in Strongsville, Ohio with a BIN of $5,950 or best offer
