1984 – Nagel Bike

April 29, 2014 By: Julien TZ Section: 1984, BikeTrials Gallery

The Nagel Bikes were built between 1984 and 1988 in the former DDR (Deutsche Demokratische Republik or German Democratic Republic) before it was re-united to western Germany in 1989.

They were build by Ralf Nagel who nowadays runs a shop for motorcycles in East Germany Barleben – http://www.zweiradnagel.de

A Trials bike enthusiast, Thanheiser regularly restores classic trials bikes, going to the extent of reproducing the original paint work and stickers, based on documentation and original photos.

He runs a constant classified advertisement in Germans trialsport magazines, looking for oldschool trial bikes.

This one is quite unique, maybe the only such bike left today.
