also bought a sh;;load of moped hubs wheels big box of zundap cycliners pistons and heads they will look cosmic if they bolt on a china girl -
a german industrial 100cc engine 13 dollars -10 euros and a bunch of great tall springed over 60 year old leather seats and more!!!!!
Rickrides if you are out there I have made inquiry for the engines and trannies you are interested in

this weekend there is a brommer beurs in fleemalle -southern belgium-french spreaking - but unless i can find someone to hitch a ride with it will be impossible to get there by public transportation over 3 hours one way on a weekday!!
