In Mark's own words: "I bought it in Spangdahlem
Germany in 1980. It was disassembled by a shop in Luxembourg because of
transmission problems. The previous owner (US Air Force person) paid for
the disassembly and diagnosis, but could not afford to have it repaired.
I bought it for $350.
I bought used parts from GAWA in Saarbrueken Germany. They helped me with
transmission reassembly. I also purchased the Stucchi LeMans fairing from
them. It had been on their rally racer. I painted the tank and sidecovers
to look more like a LeMans. It was previously the yellow-green color.
I rode around the old Nurburgring on this bike during an Elephanten-Treffen."
happened to it?: "It is still in my garage in Sacramento California.
I ride it, but it is not my primary transportation. I used to ride it
every day to the university in Sacramento. The brakes really need work."
