Restoration of K-175 Kovrovets Vintage Soviet Motorcycle

Posted on November 4, 2018 by tim


Man got a a vintage Soviet motorcycle K-175 Kovrovets. He had warm nostalgic feelings about this model because he shortly owned one when he was a kid. And now he got it again and decided to restore this vintage model in not its best shape. And here is the process and what he got at the end is really nice:

This motor bike was produced in 1960 and was presented to the chairman of a Soviet collective farm as a present from the state for his extraordinary effort in farming. Then, thirty years ago the owner has died and the bike spent all this time in a garage.

This is how it looked like.

So the work has begun and they disassembled the whole thing

Even the now dull and sometime before very shiny alluminium parts were restored to its initial shine.

    This was a real labour of love. I think it’s the most perfect rebuild and restoration I have ever seen in my 70+ years. I would buy this man a pint (or two). All the best from the UK.
