    Such a wonderful, nostalgic ride! Does it have a battery pack stacked in the frame somewhere?

    Ralf, apart from consumables like air filter, oil filter and spark plugs, I rather think the Cappuccino is 100% Japanese.

    Hahaha! It is the same with cars, isn't it? At least your Suzuki should be 90% japanese! Did you ever check that?

    Hi Ralph, yes we love our English bicycles with their Japanese derailleurs, Swiss brakes, Belgian rims, French hubs and Italian saddles! I can't think of anything German, unless I count Sachs-Huret but they were at least half French.

    That said, my first motor bike had a Sachs engine and a Bing carburetor.

    Hi Cecilia, the head badge is badly scraped so I'm afraid the Pakarang view is none too pretty.

    Nice looking ride Clipper. Port and starboard views too!
    No 'pakarang view' though

    Then just you go and get it then, so that I can have a silhouette of my dear Woerkum.

    It would even be nicer if i drove further down the road. It,s the road to Loevestein Castle, behind the beautiful marvelus car is Woudrichem.
    I would get a sillouette of Woudrichem there.

    Umm-mm... could have been a nice shot had not someone stuck that old Opel in the way.
    OK, OK, big boy. It is a nice shot, I like the way the fading light picks out just the top front of the car, window trims and door handles. Very effective.

    - and most engines in Skoda models in Norway, has the VW sticker under the Skoda logo on top of the engine.

    Even my car - supposedly unique, borrows a LOT from Land Rover (same factory).
