    That fairing is wild, what's the story with it?

    Any more pictures of the bike?

    Back then, in the former GDR, there wasn't much choice of motorcycles. We built our own stuff. Fairing self-made from glass fiber reinforced epoxy. Some experiments with colors too. Those were exciting times.

    The left one was mine, without fairing and I tried a different tank.

    That's really is cool, I can only imagine all the stories from living in that place in time. So different than today I'll bet.
    Thanks for posting those.

    2 oldest I have, me on my Kawasaki KE100 roughly around 1978 or 79. That little dual sport bike was unstoppable.

    And me next to a nice K bike that I wish was was mine in 1985
