BaT History (1 entry)

This 1961 Victoria Spoetnik 115 was manufactured by Zweirad Union in Nürnberg, Germany and was sold in-country under the Victoria nameplate. This example is finished in white and metallic blue and is powered by a 48cc two-stroke single paired with a three-speed transmission. Equipment includes a white two-up seat, a leading-link fork, a shrouded cylinder head, front and rear lighting, a polished exhaust system, a kickstarter, an enclosed drive chain, wire-spoke 16″ wheels, and a center stand. The bike was acquired by its current owner in 2018, and subsequent work included repainting and chrome-plating the fuel tank, cleaning the carburetor, and replacing the spark plug. This Spoetnik is now offered in North Carolina by the seller on behalf of its current owner owner with German operating permits and a bill of sale.
