Hello Trabi fanatics, I was posted in Germany in 1989-1992 and had the chance to drive a Trabi which I fell in love with. I'm a Mechanical Engineer now, and have made a living designing, machining, welding, fabricating and so-on. I currently race Vintage MX and Hare scrambles and I'm an avid 2-stroke fanatic. I will be lurking on these pages for a while and gaining all the info and knowledge I can. Hopefully I will find a Trabi to buy within the next year or so. I think I would want a P601 wagon, so if anyone knows of one in the area, please let me know! I'm also interested in just climbing all over one to see just how it's built. Suspension, brakes, engine, transmission... I'm thinking I'd build the engine to more modern porting and combustion chamber standards, carb it with twin Mikuni's and build some pipes as well.
