Default I got a little write-up in a magazine

I know I should be humble and not mention it but it does feel kinda good that I got little write-up in the best german bike magazine CustomBike.
As some of you know I moved to California from Hamburg, Germany some 30 years ago and while I did a lot of different things custom motorcycles have always been in my life one way or the other.
Horst Heiler of CustomBike visited me and wrote the story about me and my hobby shop.

This is the cover



Pages 1 & 2



Pages 3 & 4

Congratulations. Can't enlarge the linked photo to make out the text well. Any chance of a better version? My German is rusty, but I need the practice.
Danke, Axel

Way to go Mike. Much deserved. I dig the model kits. What it that motor? Looks like a small radial.

Thank you all so much. This means more than the actual story. Tiger Alex I'll PM you a link to the story. KC - Horst Heiler is a member here and discusses early chopper history. Jaws, yes it is a radial. mid 1930 US Airforce stationary engine built by aircraft engine manufacturer Franklin to drive pumps and generators. Even has dual mags. I need a round Toit to restore it....
