Look on Ebay USA for a Sachs 125 manual , if it's a 6 speed then 72 model will do it

I have a 72 Spare parts manual here that I can scan some of it for you if you can't find the real deal.

Sachs engine specs for series 10015agSachs   (KTM Penton Hercules Zundapp DKW and others)


There may be a problem here....
I may not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.

I suppose plugging your bar ends isn't an issue?

Guys, thanks for the replies, think I'm right now, I have been offered a manual to copy. This site is awesome if you are into the old bikes  :). FYI, I was told by the seller that the bars are a close grained narrow gauge works item, tough as teak but as light as maple. Personally I think mainline might be right and he has just taken plugging the bar ends to the next level?

Just had a phone call from a mate restoring a DKW same as in the pictures here, his bottom end is totally shot, does anyone have a bottom end for a Sachs 5B 5 speed 125 they want to part with? This motor was fitted to several different makes.
