Thorsten´s bus roof

Two weeks ago I had to realize that I will not finish the Messerschmit-Projekt this year due too the missing Carb and cylinder... but good to have some crazy friend calling for some support in realizing another "Schizzo-Projekt".

After long discussions Thorsten decided to cut off his "Pilzdach" and to implement a full comfort sleeping-Roof from Westfalia. Dennis, Felix, Thorsten, Thomas "welding god!" and me started the Project at thursday 8 pm and I had to leave at 4 am next day to get some sleep.

Merry Christmas

Christmas-impression from Mannheim ... Adde and me met before a small but verry nice winter-Glühwein-meeting at "Christian´s Fahrschule" ... and like every time when Christian says "only a few guys who are crazzy about Porsche.." it was a highligh.... Thank you Christian!

the Messerschmitt Project II

nothing but styling....
...few days ago I have started with the new build up of the 58´ Vespa. I had to make a decission if the look should be show-condition or "used" ...after some cleaning I have decided that a complete restauration (with new paintjob) would destroy the old patina that no 5k EUR paintjob could give you back. At this moment many things are allready done also the engine is built up new, only the piston, the cylinder and the carburator are missing (I hope the "Rollerladen" will send them as a christmas present).

All tech specs are new or restored. Also wheels, suspension, brakes and all the cables and wires are new. It was fun to work on that kind of "bike" and I think it will be a lot of fun to cruise this vehicle...

To show you the actual state of the project check this out...:
