Spent a couple of hours sanding down the inside and then my wife painted the inside with dark blue Hamerite ( She used to be a painter ), very nice color

Ammobox with 2-strokeoil, sparkplug etc:

I bolted the DDR-sign over the holes of the original taillight:

I ordered a new taillight, the same as the one of the tug. I can put it right above the DDR-sign, at the same height as the one on the tug. Think it will look neat.

Adapted the steeringdampenerbar:

Took it for a spin............... man is that tub light

Had my hackwheel in the air on every right turn, spilling precious gasoline over the tank ( and my crotch ) so took it back home and bolted in my heavy little helper: the bar of lead I made for the transportplatform ( I melted old lead into a checkerplatebox, about 30 kilo's ):

Waaaaaay better. Now I can take right turns and decide when I want to fly the "chair"
