This Münch Mammoth was one of 250 produced between 1966 and 1973 by Friedel Münch. It is one of 50 imported to North America by Floyd Clymer, and the only known Münch to be sold new in San Diego. All major components are made of magnesium, except for the front rim, handlebar and controls, motor and frame. It has an enclosed chain, dual headlamp, NSU 4-cylinder 1200cc car motor (found in the NSU Prinz) with 88 HP. It has twin Weber carbs. The Münch motorcycle had a ground-up restoration by Ziggy of Classic Motorcycles in the Spring of 2013. It won Best of Show at the Dana Point Concours d’Elegance in June of 2013 and 1st in Class at the Quail Motorcycle Gathering in 2015. Here is a video of the bike running from our YouTube channel:
Below are photos of some of the restoration process. The bike was completely apart when we picked it up. There were multiple tubs of pieces and parts, and no manual to go by, however, it came together beautifully.
