The Moped Riders

März 7, 2014 Herbie's World Tour, Trips 0

Last weekend Flo and Domi where driving to Flo’s property in Lower Austria. While they were driving through the so-called “Wood Quarter” – the northwestern part of the province, they got to know an older gent who’s repairing and selling motorcycles. Domi returned with two mopeds. He bought a “KTM Hobby” from 1984 and a vintage “JAWA Stadion” from 1964 – both in good working condition.

Herbie’s Got a Friend

Juni 17, 2013 Trips 0

Today Domi and his friend Matthias, nephew of Friedrich Hübsch, picked up a 1960 Volkswagen Bug in the very South of Burgenland, one of nine Austrian provinces. The black Beetle resides in its original condition. It still has the original paint, six volt and 1,100 cc with 30 horsepower. And it seems like that this vehicle has never been welded. The only question remains is, who the next owners will be? Either Katharina, a friend and DLV club member of ours, or Domi and Zainab.... Read more

Going to Berlin

Oktober 28, 2012 Trips 0

Domi and Flo went to Berlin to get Friedrich one of the famous caravans called „Dübener Ei“ and a Trabant which he had bought on eBay. Christopher was also there in order to buy a Trabant wagon. The condition of the vehicles was more than bad out of the Trabant from Christopher. They fix the trailer as best they could and set off for home. It was a troublesome journey with a refractive apart trailer, and a non-braking Trabant. Read more
