  1. Hi there fellow bikers. I am trying to adjust the carbs on my M72 with the 750 side valve engine and I can't find out what is the purpose of those extra adjusting screws. There seams to be one more adjusting screw on my carbs then there is on both the K37 and the PZ28? All help on this matter will be appreciated. Many thanks.
  2. Hi Fletch and thanks for the reply. That was also what I thought but that is a spring loaded needle.

  5. Yes the paint on the headligth shell is the origninal one, The only things tempered with is the gearshift lever that has a different color then the rest of the bike and I dont think this is the original tailligth. The sidecar is in original shape and same color. The story goes that this is one of 7 bikes bougt from an east german officer, along with the armytruck they road in on. The previous owner bougt her with 16 Km. on the odometer in 1984.) I'll post some more pics soon.)
  6. She had been standing there for 28 years. ) Only 9045 Km. from the day she was born. I have put new bearings and seals in the gearbox and new and better pistons bearings and seals in the motor. She will also get all rubber and cables new, but I will keep her looks and patina. )
  7. Hi there fellow bikers! This is my first post here, I'm rebuilding a 1952 M72 and I need your advice on opgrading to a electronic ignition. I am considering to use the type3 ignition instead of the old points and rotor, but holding on to the 6V system. Does anyone have experience with that? Now that the M72 has manual timing advance original, how will she advance the timing efter i have put the new ignition in? What will be the best coil to use (one that fits under the front cover)? Btw. I just love the character in those old russian bikes, nothign fits rigth away, everythng has to be filed and custom fit and along the the way she has become the most loveable bike I ever had.)
  8. Nice! I like the Nero MK2.)
