Phil is the proprietor of The MZ Shop , online retailers who specialise in supplying parts for MZ and Simson motorcycles. So what else could Phil ride during this trip other than one of his MZ’s?
The bike which Phil has chosen for this trip is an 1975 ES150/1, his first ever MZ Phil bought after a drunken Ebay bid. This is the motorcycle which is responsible for the meandering career path which Phil has ended up following.
With Earles forks and a powerful 150cc two stroke motor, the ES150/1 is an elegant if quirky motorcycle perfectly suited as a gentleman’s touring motorcycle, capable of cruising all day at 55mph with occasional forays beyond 65mph.
