Post Sale Update: This CZ sold for $6,900 after 19 bids on eBay in Hailey, Idaho.
CZ experts know that the yellow tank with rubber knee pads and a checkerboard stripe means that this is either a 1971 or 1972 model.
Despite the cosmetic differences, the bike was very similar to its 1970 predecessor. Despite the name, the motor was actually a 380. The biggest differences from the previous iteration were the two-piece fender, the position of the downtube, bare shocks, longer steering tube, and separate airbox.
