Hi all, I '
27 years old and i live in Nieuwrode, Belgium. I'm a part of the IFA friends here in Belgium. I don't speak any german so i hope english is no problem. I hope i can learn a lot at this forum and that i can ask some help when i'm rebuilding the 601 Retro Racer the comming spring.
I fell in love with trabant on a working holiday in Hungary, i saw them there in action and fell instantly in love. Then back home i was looking for some trabant minatures and gadgets on Ebay when i came across a Kombi on 10 km's from my house for a bidding with no reserve. Made a crazy bid and 2 days later got a email from Ebay that i won the auction. Fuck still had to tell my girlfriend, luckely she was happy as well.
After some work on the brakes, i got it running. after some work i got it written in Belgium.
Didn't want it original and went to holland to get some parts.
With this as a first result:
Currently there are stuko's in front and in the back. -70mm in front and original springs in back. A custom exhaust to be able to go lower.
These are some current pictures:
Then the Retro Racer:
They guy where i bought my mattig's and the lowering had a partially restored trabant that he want to sell, so i bought this as well actually.
Had big plans at first but with losing my job i'm going to rebuild it but not repaint yet, first have it running in the original color and that afterwards perhaps repaint it.
This is the plan i have in mind:
So only frontspoiler on the exterieur.
