KR201
« on: May 31, 2012, 11:07:27 PM »
After i got back my KR201 for 15 years i thought there is not plenty to do. Fault mates ! so much bits and bobs.
Unfortunately the former owner did nothing at all . Sad !
Well, another challange.

It might have faults but it still looks superb!

Is that the ladder from the Isetta picture with the aeroplane?

Roadsters, so pretty, so impracticable. Now these are used as collectors cars that no longer matters though. Set fair and blow the old cobwebs out of your hair. Fantastic.

Haha, no Al , it the ladder from my neighbour  ;D
Just start doing some maintenance on the engine, brakes, wireings etc. well, all that stuff bringing the roadster back on the road again. Unfortunately the former owner did nothing on that fantastic kind of Messerschmitt. He was a guy with two left hands !

Excellent! It would be great to see some film of it on You Tube!

Just in time for a few cooler autumn, clear sky running in days before winter. Should be good for next season.
