This is one I picked up today. It's a 1987 CZ Type 514 380cc which if you change the date around to 1978 it would be more correct of the year it would have been competitive.

It has a little bit of history as this bike was owned by Rick "Super Hunky" Seiman from Dirt Bike Magazine years ago for what that is worth. It has been in a trailer for quite a number of years and the ownership trail is legit. It will need quite a bit of work to get it back to rideable condition. I have plans.







The seat is in near perfect condition.

Scott,

You bought Super's bike? I kinda question that, as the shocks aren't totally sacked... B) Those forks look suspiciously like Maico forks to me...You can see his preferences for desert sleds all over on this bike. I have swapped e-mails with him, and bought a bunch of old DB issues on CD, etc. As a matter of fact, just this evening, I put up his 'souvenir poster of the 1972 & 1974 Barstow-to-Vegas routes, which I've had for years, and finally found the perfect place for in the garage.

Knowing you penchant for super-fine machine work, I'm looking forward to the fruits of your plans...

God Bless,


Hammer

Hey Hammer, the bike was his originally. He sold, gave, or whatever, the bike to someone else who installed the desert tank and where the stock tank went who knows. The person I got the bike from is a very close friend of his so he knew the history.

The forks are actually CZ but they could look like Maico from a distance. The chances are I am going to swap them out for something I can use a light front wheel on. This stock one looks like it must weigh about 100lbs LOL.

Cool new project Scott.....I never seen one of these before.
Too bad you don't have the original tank.
I am sure you will come up with a cool tank for it :OnFire

Here is what they are supposed to look like. This is an old ad/brochure I have from back in 91 I think. I used to be semi sponsored by this shop.

I had rode one of these back when they came out and they were.......a 1978 bike actually. They worked OK for a trail type bike. Here's some of the things about the bike.

This is the stock carb....a Jikov that looks like a Bing copy.



The stock rear fender and an Answer silencer that was made for this bike, not something that was fabbed for it. I don't remember if they made one or not.



Original folding shift lever.....Czech style.



Somewhere one of the engineers must have seen some Simons forks as the top clamp is relieved and a bolt tightens it ala Simons style.



The original number plate with the cable guard still intact. It is also soft just like it came off the assembly line which astounded me.



More to come.
