The original NZ 350 lamp has a stamp inside the housing, which reads "HASAG" and "Nr. 165 NZ" were the number 165 stands for the diameter of the lamp. See below on left. On the right you can see that even the original lightbulbs had a "HASAG" stamp on them.
These switches were both used on all NZ 350 up to 1943. For the NZ 350/1943 only the HASAG switch was used, were the key was made non-removable. The left picture shows the HASAG switch, the right picture the HELLA switch. The corresponding ignition key can be seen also.
All NZ 350 until late 1943 used a small rubber to cushion the tank against the frame. As this rubber was lost easily, it was advised to fix it with binding wire to the tank. From late 1943 onwards this rubber was in replaced with the leafspring seen here.
This little bottle was manufactured by a few factories and was used for weapon oil, gasoline or keroesene. It was made from brass or sheetmetal, mostly painted black. When used to coldstart the NZ in cold weather, it is filled with gasoline which should be injected, through the decompression valve, directly into the compression chamber.
Below on the right side a leather holster for the "Einspritzkanne" is pictured. In the description it was pointed out that this leather holster was never supplied, the metal part pictured on the left was supplied instead. The position of this bracket can be verified in the manual D605-27. Reproductions of this brackets from Eastern Europe are manufactured in a way that this bracket is attached to the front fork, which is not correct. More picures here..

The lamp shown below on left was used on all NZ350 until the introduction of the NZ350-1943 (see "Service Letter 2116" in the download section). After that the unified taillamp, shown on the right was used for the NZ350-1943 and the NZ350-1. This is basically the same lamp, apart from the paint, that was used on the NZ250.
On the left the original grease nipple of the NZ are shown. It is made from aluminium. On the right you can see the, zinc-plated, modern, replacement which can be seen on restorations very often, but which are not original. More info on the grease nipples of the NZ350-1 can be seen here . The right pictures shows the three types of original Screws found on the NZ.
On left you can see the gascap as used on the NZ 350. On the right side the cap for the NZ 350-1. Please note that the NZ350-1 cap was originally not chromed but painted.

Below you will find two pictures of a restored SP13R controlbox for the NZ350-1 (and the RT 125). It has been fitted with a modern, replacement, voltage-regulator. In all other respects this controlbox is absolutely original with an original ignition coil which has been rewound. On the left picture one can see how the ignition key was made non-removable for Wehrmacht-use. Also very interesting is the original rubber/fibre gasket under the red ignition tell-tale lens.

This lamp is also used on the RT125. Please note, that the "slingshot" bracket that is used to mount this lamp to the front springer is differently shaped when compared to the later NZ 350-1 part. For more pictures of this lamp, click here

This lever was used from late 1939 until the introduction of the NZ350-1943, it always had the part number 122815-0. On the right you can see the three different levers which were all used under the same part number. The left lever has a aluminium clutch lever, a pressed steel deco lever and the aluminium base was fixed to the handlebar by a brass wedge. The centre lever has a base made out of diecast zinc which is attached by a steel wedge to the handlebar. The clutch lever is made from aluminium and it has a pressed steel deco lever . The right lever seems to be the latest version with diecast base and clutch lever and pressed steel deco lever . The base is attached to the handlebar by two small grub screws. Pictures supplied by Thomas Seilkopf.

This fin was a mud and snow scraper. The "Fin" would clean the debris off the tire before it passed by the drive chain. Without this "scraper fin" the mud and snow will be drawn into the motor crankcase by the returning chain. This was a very bad thing and in the winter the mud and snow could freeze inside the block disabling the bike. The fin is a direct result of lessons learned from combat in Russia.
