first of all, excuse me for not writing in Deutch, wich I know only a little (enough to register in this nice forum!). I believe that many of you can read English.
I am italian, I live in Udine (northern Italy, near Slovenja and Osterreich) and I wish to buy 2 Simson Schwalbe.
A few months ago a friend of mine came back from Hamburg, where he was for three years, and told me about this "fashonable DDR moped". I started looking for info on the net just for fun, but soon became completely in love with this beautiful moped!
I've decided to buy one, but there are no Schwalbe in Italy so I need to come to Deutschland. My friend wants one too, to remember the good times in Hamburg. Many other friends of ours are waiting to know how many Schwalbe we will be able to buy and bring back to Udine! Nobody can resist such a beautiful design...
I need your advice, and your help if you can:
1) I am now looking for 2 Schwalbe KR51/1 or /2, not authomatic, complete and with regular documents (I need them to bring the Schwalbe in Italy). What range of price do you think is correct for each?
2) I checked many announces on the net, but only a few are from cities near to Osterreich. Wich site of announces do you suggest? (tried E-bay and mobile.de)
3) I'd like to drive as far as Nurnberg to buy them, not much more... Is it better to look for them northern?
4) I believe that if I could talk with someone "on the field" I could find them more easily than looking for announces. Do you suggest someone (reliable) that deals with old mopeds?
Or can you directly help me in looking for 2 (or more!) Schwalbe near your place?
I don't do this for work, it would be only for me and some friends. I am an architect, not a dealer!
