Mopar pony

Recently, "by accident" was at an American Car meeting (now every Friday on the Dormagen metro car park) and I saw my secret dream live and in color for the first time. The Barracuda of Plymouth! I like that! But not the wild gear of 1970, but the most moderate and compact copies for US…

42Hobbies: to come: Elfi

Life is like that: the other day I was with the W126 for cavity sealing and wheel arch repair at Karrosseriefachbetrieb. It turned out that the man is a member of Kreiflerfreunde CologneYou start a conversation and I mentioned that I had the intention to reduce something of my Kreidlerbest√§nde. Apparently, without much interest, my…

42Hobbies: Elfi in the House

I know: you should only give names to children and animals, but in this case it is not my fault. The 1972 RS already called "Elfi" when I traded them. Finally, the name bears witness to the rather extraordinary fact that the first (and so far the only) owner was a woman. Elfi just. Although…

42Hobbies: Elfi Disassembly I

The tank and the seat are the most obvious weaknesses of the beautiful body of Elfi. The tank because it's very rusty on the inside and the bench because it needs a new cover. So, both parts had to be dismantled. Previously, however, I was able to release the lock from the steering and the…

Defrost tank >> A new one!

With Elfis Tank, I go to the second round on the topic of rust removal. How can this not be done right here read. This time, I started with the brutal treatment, but the abrasive granules were a bit sharper than the last time. The result was quite impressive after half an hour of rotation…

There is a hole in the tank, oh Henry.

The Elfie Reservoir is a jewel. Generally without clutter, with chrome fairly well preserved. As already described, I took the work in "rotary attack" in the drum dryer. The first sanding session highlighted a large amount of rust dust and a second treatment gear enhanced the image in the tank. This should now be followed…

Refurbishment & # 39; 71 RS >> A long way

In Elfie's treatment, I had (and have not done so far) the same effort to operate as my sheet. So, no complete disassembly, at most one – because it suits my nature and my abilities – a thorough cleaning. In addition to the renewal of defective parts, of course. Meanwhile, my moped was still relatively…

Reprocessing> 71 RS >> Keys and wheels.

As mentioned before, the background of the renovation is over and I have started to rebuild new and refurbished parts on the torso of the moped headless. Below you will find a brief overview of the project. After the key remnants I had pulled out of the lock cylinders of the steering lock and the…

Tuff Rider

After a break of one year (mainly for commercial reasons), send a short mail. The outfit was the costume for a play. Unfortunately, the Quickly was not allowed on the scene …Personally, I find that the moped is better than any Harley.
