Everyone claims the bike is great.... ´could be..I say it´s Teutonic... like Porche...´Not built for 5´7" dwarfs like meThe ADLER was once.... ´completely the opposite... a twin 2-stroke... beautiful..was sold to Japan and became the Honda in (I think) 1956 or 7.. not sure.. No.. never a Beemer... not fo this nut....
