Hi compatriot from Dragonhill,

you are right: these bikes like Hercules, Zündapp ("es zündet und stellt ab), Kreidler and Maico have been the dream bikes of our young generation whenn we were 15 years old. I owned a Kreidler Florett of 1964 and couldn't imagine in that times what kind of big bikes we would have only some years later... It was incredibile what followed after.

Thank you for pics of your Schnapsglas-dream.
