IWL Scooter Calendar and Auto Links


Christmas is the time for buying calendars so I'm running a little behind on this post. The IWL Forum in Germany has released an IWL calendar. The calendar features some excellent, large format photos of IWL scooters, mainly Berlins and a couple of Pittys. Click on the link to the calender website to view the photos and make an order.

Other Weblinks
I do spend quite a lot of time on the internet looking for information about the machines that interest me. Over time I tend to lose track of them so here is a list of links - as much a reminder to myself as potentially of interest to others. So, it you too like German motorcycles, scooters and two-stroke engined cars, enjoy! I'll be updating these links periodically too.
