You may have more luck posting in the NSM (Not So Modern) section - I'm sure the denizens there will appreciate more info on this early scooter.

Also note that only moderators can reply in the For Sale/Wanted section, so I'll move this over to NSM anyway.

Good luck finding parts!

If people search google for Duerkopp's, that'll cause this thread to pop up in the search results.

Other ways people might spell Durkopp when searching or contributing - you might want to use those as well when searching for parts, especially on German (*.de) sites.

this is probably about one in a handful of bikes I'd consider replacing my S1 with.

must include picnic basket, though.

It's a cool looking bike, for sure. I'd still like to at least see a Heinkel in real life, even if I'll probably never own one.
