The CJ750 is based on the 1956 Soviet-origin IMZ MZ-195 (Irbitski Mototsikletniy Zavod), itself derived from the 1938 German BMW R71.
In 1957, the Soviet Union modernized its Urals. It decided to sell to the People’s Republic of China, the tools and manufacturing methods of the Gorkii factory. The first Chinese motorcycle came off the chain in 1961. It is called the Chang-Jiang, in reference to the longest river in the country: Yangzi Jiang. It immediately equips the administrations and the army.
The Chinese M72 was named Chang Jiang 750. From 1957 to 1966, CJs were equipped with Type I engines and transmissions. This transmission was almost identical to those of the BMW R71 and Ural M72. In September 1966, production of the Type II engine and gearbox began. It was not until 1972 that the Type II engine replaced the type I commonly used.
In the late 1970s, the plant was merged with aircraft manufacturer Guo Ying Hongdu Ji Xie Chang. The 6V 30-horsepower engines were quickly replaced by a 32-horsepower 12V version. Our bikes are models from the 70s.
