Sachs Motors
Hello. Here in Switzerland early sachs Motors were put in Swiss Motorbikes with a strong regulation. Tha maximal speed allowed was and is 30 k/hour. How was the Swedis legisltaion and practice about this? I found Swedis Motorbykes with Sach Motors in the Web that mus hav run faster?
Guy Bollag
Zurich, Switzerland

    Many countries including France, Sweden and particularly Italy produced complete motorcycles and kits which bypassed the early laws governing mopeds, allowing some of them to go more than twice the legal limit. It was common practice for the manufacturers to simply add a throttle restriction to the carburettor which kept them to the legal limit, but which took just a few minutes to remove. ~ Ed.

Sachs 1251/6B
I restore British 4 stroke motorcycles, but I have been asked by a friend to rebuild his Sachs 1251/6B which has been stored since 1975 and believed to have only had 2130 miles of use.
Before I finally agree to do this for him, I would like to obtain data sheets / parts lists / schematic diagrams / specifications / tolerances / torque settings / etc plus any workshop manuals or similar that collectively will give me manufacturers requirements for the correct assembly of this engine.
If you are able to help, please let me know what you can provide and associated costs.
Many thanks

Wiring Diagram<
Sachs XTC 125 4 stroke
I need a wiring diagram for my sachs xtc 125cc four stroke, the wiring is in pretty poor condition for a 3.5 year old bike. It has the suzuki 125 cc engine and I think there is a problem on the charging circuit as the battery runs flat and the lights get brighter as you rev the engine. I tried an aftermarket regulator but when I fitted it it got very hot and started to heat up the wiring from the generator/engine.Any help, information on fixing the problem or where to get a wiring diagram from would be most appreciated. I have contacted several sachs dealers but they seam to be uninterested either can't or won't help. Thanks, Rich

Sachs 100cc engines in JBK, Horex
Horex rebel 1959, JBK 1959
I can find no mention of Sachs powered J.B.K. motorcycles. I had a 1959 Horex rebel 100CC which was similar to JBK. Both motorcycles were sold in the US in the late 50's and early 60's. The JBK was upgraded to 125cc Sachs engine with footshift replacing hand grip shift in early 60's. Was the Horex manufactured at Bad Homburg or manufactured for them by Hercules?

Hello Tom,

yes, a few $, I can request the wholsaler about the fuel tap, the fuel hose
and the plug wire but the shipping to USA is about 15 $. Should I inquire
the price?

The bike looks like this one ? This would be a Hercules Prima in Germany.

Best regards

Georg Landmann

Ok Tom,

I´will ask my dealer Herbert. In Germany Hercules-Sachs marketed about
200000 of this mopeds in the 80´s.

But the german cancer of bureaucracy stoped this success. To wear a helmet
become obligation and you had to take a lot of driving lessons for this 25 km/h bike.

Now the old scool bikes are back.

Hi Georg......

You can see it also on my page:

In Germany it´s named "mofa", Motor - Fahrrad means motor cycle, restricted
to 25 km/h. The engine is the same as yours but the cylinder have smaller ports and a
smaller caburetor.

Back light is also not expensive, a will ask about it.
Yes Georg, that's the one in the photo. Mine is blue. Neat to see a
> photo of it. My nephew's Dad bought one too for his boys back then but
> I doubt if they still have it. I don't have the tail light anymore, but
> I don't think I'm going to street ride it much. Just curious though what that would cost? I live on 23 acres and can ride it around the country block. I have the owners manual somewhere upstairs.

Yes, I also owned one as I was 14 Years old till I was 16. Then I must have
a "Kleinkraftrad", very bad word, hihi. It is a smal motorbike, 10 HP, 80 km/h and you could take out a gril with it :-))))

Today there is a great revival in mofa - racing. It´s pity for this old
bikes, but the youth have a lot of fun to make a race and tune this smal
bikes. You can change a 80ccm cylinder with a big carburetor, less weight,
it runs up to 100 km/h.
Yes, they are very economical and you don´t need a car park.

The bikes were completly made in Bavaria. The engine were made by Fichtel &
Sachs (Today ZF - Trading) and the bike itself by the Hercules - Werke
Nürnberg. My friend Herbert worked for Sachs and Hercules.

Oh, 1 AM in Dachau, I must sleep.

Good beye!

With the price of fuel over there, they are economical and practical for some I suppose. It's a shame everything is so restrictive nowadays.
Too much regulation. The bike has been in a shed and not suprisingly the tires lost the air over the years, but not even dry rotted. They pumped up just fine! Made in Netherlands they were. I think I have 1300 miles on it?
Thanks for your help, Georg!! :)

I found the bike at an estate sale in lincoln,CA and had to have it. I put all the parts i found in the workshop at the estate back onto it, but was unable to find a headgasket. so i made one out of 0.030" gasket material, had the cylinder berry honed, cleaned out the fuel injector and the left side of the crankcase. it ran for about 15 seconds and blew out the headgasket. I was later told that it requires a copper headgasket and have been unable to find one. but it did sit behind my house for about 6 months under a tarp and has some minor surface rust in the cylinder. the frame is in good shape as well as the gas tank, although one of the plastic emblems is gone and the other has a crack in it. it looks to me like it is repairable. but I am by no means a motorcycle repairman and recently moved so it is impossible for me to keep the bike any more.&nbs! p; I would like to see it go to someone who will make it run, and take good care of it. please contact me if you have further questions.

I am also missing a Hercules badge-any ideas?
Thanks, -- Craig Barbieri -- Philadelphia -- cacb at

Not sure if a 1974 Tyran qualifies, but it certainly had a Sachs engine. I have a chassis now and I am looking for parts to begin restoring this bike. It is a 125 and I have been told that many of the Dalesman parts fit it. I am especially in need of a seat, tank and pipe, of course an engine too, but they seem to be plentiful around these pages. Anyone with any additional information on this bike should contact me at their earliest convenience. -- Thank you. -- JoeyMotox at aoldot com

I have a Sachs gearbox in which the connecting rod pulled in half. I couldn't say what year, or make it is, but i am sure it is a two stroke in around the 125 size. the rod spun around, and ruined the case halves. but the side covers, magneto, clutch, and transmission are probably in useful condition. I would get rid of it cheep to someone who could use it. kirtlisa at

Hello, I own a KTM with a 80cc Sachs 5speed water-cooled engine. Unfortunately it have a defective ignition (motoplatt 12v). Because the ignition is at the right side of the engine, I cannot attach a motoplatt from a zundapp, because they are mounted on the left side so they turning left instead of right. You might think this is a joke, but it really doesn't work. So I am looking for a motoplatt ignition that is made for turning right, which is marked on the the ignition with a arrow. Thanks Eric -- e-meijer at

In the early 1970s I owned a 71 Sachs Boondocker and following year a 72 Sachs/DKW 125 Enduro. I always thought they were a great little bike, always running w/ the best in their class of the day. My friends were all riding Pentons, Jawas,Maicos and of course the spectrum of rice burners. Mention of water around Some of these bikes and they would belly up but the Sachs and DKW were submarines and could swim with the fish. The Earls front suspension was superb to any telescopic fork Id ever ridden, handling was Ace in the sand. The Sachs engine was cursed with and awful shifting problem. (just when you were pulling away from an opponent or got the hole shot off the start, the mid shift curse would occur. Your RPMs would scream through the roof an everyone would blast by you leaving you in their dust, eating their dirt. Well that was the worst experience I had with these bikes. I always thought they made a much better Enduro racer than Motocrosser. All in all these were great bikes that ran with the best of them in the early 70s and have gone forgotten for many years. Its good to see people are finding a new interest in them. -- Ed Hall, Texas, USA -- quonset at

I've noticed that a lot of people in the Sachs page are looking for information for the Enduro series with Fichtel & Sachs two-stroke engines. For anyone wanting repair/restoration information, Clymer publishes a maintenance book. I found it at , but I'm sure there are other sources for the same book. -- Bob Calhoun -- robertc at corprasoftdot com

The Sachs motorcycle is a favorite of mine since I talked my dad into buying me one back in 1970. I've enclosed a photo of my 1969 Sachs 125 Enduro model, taken in front of my parent's house on July 4th, 1971 in Long Beach, California. The photo shows that I stripped off all the lights (it was street-legal). Also featured on the bike is a custom exhaust by legendary cycle exhaust builder, Tom Turner. I cut-up the side case, exposing the chain sprocket. The safety gear in the photo includes the football pads on the knees.

Today, I still own two of these odd-looking dirt bikes, including a mint 1969 Sachs 125 cc Cross Country, and a well-preserved 1970 DKW 125 cc motocrosser model. Feel free to write if you have any questions. Dan Stiel -- dan at stieldirectdot com

The only other company in Mexico that made bikes was Islo, and they started with the Sachs engines 50cc, 100cc, 175cc and 250cc. and later made the whole bikes.

This company is gone too.
