Our 1970 Production Racer was originally sold by Gus Kuhn Motors in Sept 1970 to Motorrad Narr of Munich for £757, including accessories (see http://www.guskuhn.net/GKMLtd/Feedback/Siefert.htm). The bike was sold on to a wealthy Bavarian customer, who, with that bike, became a local legend.
Some years later he gave it in part exchange to a local Yamaha dealer and it seems every boy in the south of Bavaria flattened his nose on that dealers widows and counted his Deutschmarks! It was eventually sold to the "International Race-and Rallyedriver Wastl Niedermayer" who was something of a legend in his own right. Not so much for his riding or driving, but for his indiscrinminate appreachiation of women and motorcycles alike. He had a collection (of motorcycles, not women!) that consisted of totally uncollectable motorcycles nobody else wanted- with the sole exception of the Proddy Racer!
One of the boys with the flat nose syndrome was our friend Stefan Knittel, later to become Germany's foremost motorcycle historian, who pestered Wastl for two decades until Wastl finally said: "Come and bring some money!"
Stefan is a hunter rather than a collector, so when he eventually decided to sell the Proddy Racer he kindly let us have it. Before he did, however, he made our Proddy Racer the "covergirl" of Motorrad Classic, with himself onboard (left).
