For auction is my Learner Legal MZ 125 Saxon Sportstar. This is one of the last two stroke MZs produced in the German MZ factory, which I bought for my daughter to replace her ten years older ETZ 125. However - she's rather short in the leg and finds the Sportstar too tall, so she's sticking with her old bike. I've been riding it around for the last few months, but being a "larger gentleman" I need something with a few more horsepower to cope with hauling my carcass up the hills down here in Devon.

Having said that, it's a rugged little bike that feels very tight and together with no slop in the suspension, all the gears engage easily and quietly and the brakes and handling are spot on.

I've serviced the bike (I do know my MZs having built and ridden them for the last ten years) and sorted anything that needed doing. The main thing that needed changing was that the head bearings were notchy, so these have been renewed which tidied the handing up no end. I've also replaced the unreliable "red box" ignition unit with an earlier points system, which is something that anyone with any sense does when buying a late MZ with the red box. Unusually for a Saxon, the clocks aren't cracked (they all do it), unfortunately like most Saxons, the rev counter works when it feels like it.

I've applied reflective tape on the nose fairing, the seat trims and on the top box to make it a bit more visible in the dark - very effective. The seat has a couple of splits which I've covered with black duct tape to stop the wet backside syndrome.

Just in case you don't know, these bikes are nothing at all like the earlier small MZs - this one has 12v electrics, a front Grimeca disk brake and alloy wheels. They're an ideal vehicle for passing your test on, and because they're a full size bike you don't look daft if you keep it on after your test. I've seen seventy on the clock downhill, and sixty five on the flat so it's fine for taking your test on and getting a full pass. I've not measured the MPG, but it doesn't use a lot of fuel. It's been run on Castrol 2T oil from new and the engine sounds good because of it.

Tax is £16 per year and insurance costs me £45, so motoring doesn't get much cheaper than this!

Tyres are good, there's plenty of brake linings left, the chain's good, it's MOT'd and taxed - just get on and ride it away.
