1938 Zundapp K800

The Zundapp K800 is listed as one of the top 100 machines of the 20th century. This classic motorcycle has innovative features such as a unit construction, horizontally opposed 4-cylinder motor with shaft drive, a design later adopted by Honda for the first Gold Wings. The frame and front forks are pressed steel. Many of these Zundapp motorcycles were used in World War II, often with a sidecar attached, and were the only 4-cylinder machines to be adopted by the German armed forces.
