Münch is one of the rarest names in motorcycling, with less than 250 bikes ever made. It was the 1960s brainchild of German engineer Friedl Münch; believing that bigger was better, he fitted his bikes with 1.0 and then 1.2 liter NSU car engines. Everything about the ‘mammoth’ was excessive, from its performance (225 km/h) to its weight (340 kg). A 1969 Münch 1200 TTS with custom paint by Von Dutch sold for $46,000 a few years ago, and last October, another Mammut sold for $57,240 at the MidAmerica auction. A resurgence of the Münch name in 2003 with a turbocharged US$80,000 ‘Mammut 2000‘ was unfortunately short-lived. A shame, because these extraordinary machines had character by the bucketload. The bike above is owned by Perry Bushong, and there are more pictures on Flickr.
