This 1961 Heinkel Tourist 103 A-2 was purchased 10 years ago and used primarily by the seller as a pit bike while racing at Laguna Seca. Powered by a 175cc 4-stroke single cylinder with a 4-speed transmission, the bike has been refurbished with new paint, trim, and upholstery. The wheels and engine cooling shroud were powder coated and the control cables, clutch, drive sprockets, and chain were replaced. 15K miles are currently indicated and the seller estimates that 100 miles have been added since 2008. This Heinkel is sold with a clean California title in the seller’s name. It was re-painted in a custom shade that is noted to be close to the original Pelican Red. The cast aluminum floor board was media blasted and the seat was re-upholstered in red over black with a custom ribbed pattern. New side trim was sourced and the wheels powder coated silver. Features include a rear mounted luggage rack and a correct Heinkel bar-end mirror. Minor dings can be seen on the leg shield and headlight pod in the gallery below. The 80 MPH VDO speedometer is functional, with minor pitting visible on the bezel. 15,790 miles are indicated. Powered by an air-cooled 4-stroke 175cc single with a 4-speed transmission, the engine shrouds have been powder coated, and the exhaust manifold coated by Jet-Hot. All control cables have been replaced, and the seller has installed a new battery, clutch, sprockets, chain, and exhaust. The oil was recently changed but a minor oil leak is noted from the right side engine cover. An original owner’s manual, a reprint of the factory service manual, and newsletters from the Heinkel Club Deutschland are included. The seller will also supply various spare parts. A brief riding video has been provided by the seller.
