Available in Tokyo, Japan is a Kreidler Van Veen, believed to be a 1980 model. The earlier Kreidler 50cc racers are very sexy and although this one has a later body style, it is still quite cool looking. The 50cc class used to be a major GP class because of it’s affordability and racing based on racer skill over power. Kreidler was a major part of the 50cc gp class from the beginning until their importer Van Veen, took over carrying the marque until 1982. I would expect this bike to be quite easy to import as a track only bike and the seller claims to have a container coming from Japan to Long Beach in the near future. This Kreidler should be welcomed with open arms to any vintage motorcycle event. See a website of the 50cc GP history here. See the eBay ad for this gorgeous bike here.
EDIT: This bike failed to sell on 07/05/09 with a starting bid of $12,000.
