January 2013 news update

The MZ Shop Ltd


Here at The MZ Shop Ltd, we're always keen to hear about MZ and Simson riders doing remarkable feats of daring do. So we thought we'd let you know about E2E Slowly Challenge.


To help fundraise for the British Red Cross (BRC) during Red Cross Week’ 2013 (5th to 11th May) Roger will be undertaking the e2e slowly challenge which will involve riding  his 1979 MZ TS150 motorcycle from John O’ Groats to Land’s End (or vice versa – yet to be decided) using mainly minor roads (no Motorways), carrying all camping gear, tools and necessary supplies (except water and petrol) and receiving no outside material assistance.

Roger is inviting other riders to join e2e slowly using motorcycles of under 200c and over twenty five years old. If they want to follow his particular challenge and also support the Red Cross that would be great – although anyone who wants to join in on whatever machine they choose and on their own terms – whether fund raising or not – would be welcome.

All further information can be gleaned from the E2E Slowly website:

Kind regards

November 2012 News Update


Here at The MZ Shop Ltd, we can't promise you treacle toffee and fireworks in order to keep you amused during these long, cold November nights.


But we can try and light up your MZ motorcycle's paintwork with our new range of MZ decals.


These high quality decals will compliment MZ motorcycles from the Trophy and Trophy Sport machines of the late 1960's, through the TS 125 - 250 range of bikes, right up to the ETZ 251/301decals of the 1990's.


Saxon, Simson and Skorpian decals will shortly be added, just as soon as we finalise their production.


More information on our extensive range of MZ decals can be found here:

September 2012 News Update


The MZ Shop Ltd


The MZ Shop Ltd are pleased to announce that we are now stocking a replacement electronic ignition and coil unit suitable for all 12V 2-stroke ETZ125/150, ETZ250, 251 & 301 motorcycles.


This unit does NOT replace the original generator. What it does is to utilise the original 3-phase generator as a base whilst offering a new solid state coil and electronic pickup to replace either the existing contact breaker/condensor set-up or the original electronic pickup units, such as the ESE and PVL units.


More information is available here:

July 2012 News Update

The MZ Shop Ltd



If your top end is worn out and making unseemly noises, why not take advantage of our Cylinder Rebore Service?


How does it work?

You post us your old cylinder and piston which we will inspect and agree with you in advance; the extent of any works to be carried out.


Then, we shall supply a new oversize piston kit in the size agreed with you, comprising of a brand new piston together with a new set of piston rings, a gudgeon pin and circlips. Your cylinder will be expertly rebored in order to perfectly match the new piston which we've supplied.


Your freshly re-bored cylinder shall be returned to you, together with your new piston (and your old one) using Royal Mail's recorded/signed for postage service.


The entire process usually takes between 7 - 14 days.


That's it !


What does it cost?

We charge £75 for the re-bore service plus the cost of the piston kit at the prices currently shown on our website.


The cost of return postage to UK mainland adresses using Royal Mail's recorded/signed for service is £15 .*


*Please note, this return postage charge also applies for cylinders where the customer has been informed that no work can be carried out by us, for whatever reason.


Overseas customers - please enquire in advance of sending your cylinder to us, what the return carriage costs will be.


Enquiries regarding our re-bore services can be made via:-


Telephone: 0151 493 1390 (+441514931390)
