CJ 750 Side flaps revisited

ER Classics Desktop 2022

Millions of motorcycles ride in China. And hundreds of thousands of heavy motorcycles.

Those heavy motorcycles almost all have an army past. They are the descendants of the pre-war BMW R71s that would later become Urals and Dneprs.

Those veteran side valves are now so dated that they are 'expired' in China too. The Chinese have now found a solution.

But a part of those CJ 750 machines is refurbished by the original factory from the inexhaustible stocks of parts or completely with new parts.

This is done on the basis of 'old' frame numbers. That is why these born-again tricycles can be put here on an authentic classic license plate. Also here in the Netherlands, where the Tegelse 'Motorwerk' takes care of the import and sales. The proud buyer will receive a thick 'to do' list, but if he has finished it after a week, the owner will have a reliable ZGAN classic according to the early sixties standards.

And that they are now rather endearing rather than threatening?

That is only beautiful.
