DDR - Simson

And finally I write about my motorbike.

Of course it isn't a new one, it's from '88, almost the same age as me.

Unfortunately I don't have picure of mine, 'cause I didn't take pics to my laptop from home, but there are lots of nice bikes in the Simson Klub Hungary's site, this one looks nearly the same.

The name of the model is exactly Simson S51, it has a 50ccm two-stroke engine what has 3,7 HP and 5Nm torque. It's not too much, but enough for a small bike like this (80kg), the maximum speed is about 70 km/h - but there are lots of tuned machines about 8-10 HP, what can make a surprise for other scooters :)

This is the most famous Simson, the Schwalbe.

And this custom bike is one of my favourites

DDR - Trabant

Till now, I was mostly writing about fast and sporty cars, but this time not!

In Eastern Germany, during the socialism, a lot of car were made, which are mostly unknown for people from "The West", I would like to introduce theese great cars, starting with Trabant

A few years ago tousands of Trabants were on the streets, but nowdays mostly vintage car collectors have them. It was made with two-stroke engine, this gives the unmistakeable sound.

There was of course rally version too

It's a very popular car in Hungary as well, in every year there is a rally between Budapest and Bamako, and there are people, who go with Trabi

It's a good fun to go Trabant Club meetings, we can see a lot of interesting "pimped out" automobile :)

Or military style

This 601 didn't survive the history...

Yetro meeting

Now I try to share the 2008 Yetro meeting with the english speaking readers, but I think the pictures are more interesting, for example this Alfa Romeo GTV6, this model was manufactured between 1980-87, with a 2.5 litre V6 engine

Or this Mercedes W126

Some Ford Sierra

Fiat Ritmo between 2 Bayerische Motoren Werke

Alfetta & E30

Alfa 75 with rear wheel drive

The BMW E24 series started in 1976

All the people I know are saying that this was the most beautiful BMW cupe, I have to say that I absolutely agree with them.

Production started in March 1976 with two models: the 630CS and 633CSi. Originally the bodies were manufactured by Karmann, but production was later taken in-house to BMW.

In Europe, 1984 saw the introduction of the M635CSi, essentially an E24 powered by the powerplant of the BMW M1 (the M88, now putting out 286 PS (282 hp/210 kW)). 16" BBS 3 piece wheels and a deeper air dam completed the package. Most M635csi's were equipped with 415 mm Metric Wheels requiring Michelin TRX tires.
