    i just restored one of those and registered it in the UK. I’m looking for other who have a Tornax in the UK for a bit of Petrol talk and maybe a loose fellowship. If you are interrested post a comment here. Regards Adrian

      I have three Tornax motorcycles. a 1938 U-60 and two 1951 V-200 models. You can always contact me at lantrb@yahoo.com to discuss these fine German bikes. I live in Germany and will be at the big Tornax meeting this summer..

    • Hi,
      I have 4 of these V-200 Tornax motorcycles. Thrfee look just like yours. The other one is a race bike I use on the cement oval track. The engine has been pretty well re worked and it is capable of good lap times. I did get a third place victory with it last year. I was quite happy.
      There is a big Tornax club here in Germany. Every year is one or two three day events.
      there is also a Tornax v-200 page on Facebook. Many nice fotos there. I also have many fotos of these models. E mail me if you want any information about your fine machine.

    • Hello Adrian, just read your article in the ‘Independent’ lovely bike,nice restoration.That picture (on the Vintagebike site) was taken at ‘Veterama’ Mannheim in about 1982? if it wasn’t for the rear mudgard its almost your bike?? will be in touch Bernie of Berniesbikeshed.

      • Hi Bernie,

        It does look a lot like mine especially with the orange on the tank being painted in the same more square shape rather than the oval. However mine was in a lot worse state when I got it in 86 so i shouldn’t think so.
        I had a look at your website, I like what I see :)

    Hallo Richard,
    leider ist mir bei der Spiegelabrechnung am 16.12.2015 ein Fehler unterlaufen.
    Ich habe Dir per Mastercard statt 250,00€ nur 24,75€ abgehalten.
    Sorry, tut mir Leid. Wenn du nach Bitburg kommst, wärest du so Nett und würdest mit deiner Mastercard vorbei kommen, damit wir die Differenz in Höhe von 225,25€ nach buchen können.
    Lg. Peter
