You can see my pix from the recent Veterama vintage car and bike fair in Mannheim here:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/9754854@N07/sets/72157622608882240/

A lot of construction in Switzerland and Germany made for long travel times. Friday afternoon was beautiful and sunny but Saturday morning was very wet. On our way back to Milan we stopped at the Technik Museum in Speyer which was fun...they have the most astonishing 1935 MB 500K....the ultimate art deco car.

Since I did most of my shopping on Friday, I headed for the Halle Saturday morning to stay dry. Mark Huggett had a stand of his own in the Halle this year. He usually hangs out with Hermann Rabenbauer, but Hermann had a racing committment this weekend so Mark was left to put up the stand. I spent a couple of hours with Mark chatting about bikes and parts (and drinking wine and eating chocolate....I did not stay for the Weisswurst). He has a number of new parts for the R5/R6 forks including the selector plate and chrome leather fork gaskets (for R12, too). If you have not looked through his online catalog lately, you may find some pleasent surprises.

Mark advises that an R12 fuel valve is in production, but no date for release. It will be available in both twin and single carb versions. It won't be cheap, but it will be nice.

The one of the Czech vendors also has the R5-R71 fuel valves again. I have not seen them in the market for the past 4 or 5 years.

A Hungarian has newly manufactured Amal replicas that looked very nice.

Dreyer has some new (and expensive) R5 mufflers and headers. The left side muffler hanger looks correct.

This is the first year that Zundapps may have out numbered BMW. I think there were 5 different K800 and several KS600.

Hans Keckeisen had a beautiful R51-R71 rear fender with rack. Perfect metal work! No filler needed. Not cheap, either. He had Peter Nettesheim's R32 sidecar on display. Astonishing!

Re: Veterama October 09 pix

Bruce, thanks for sharing. Any chance you could do a write-up for the next bulletin? Smile
