Any Kreidler fans in CH?

Long shot, but anyways - I know there is a scene for light motorcycles in CH and maybe you know somebody… a rather weird but cool club of enthusiasts in my home town do long distance journey on their light motorcycles. Last time from Germany to Spain "with a (Kreidler) Florett to Llorett"... this time to Rome. One of them broke down in Switzerland and would need some vintage engine parts… so if you know any Töffli fans with Kreidler engine parts stocked… have a look:

Re: Any Kreidler fans in CH?

Just noticed that I guy I sometimes ride with and has a shop in Einsiedeln is a fan:

"Kreidler/Florett ist die grösste Leidenschaft von Benno Beeler jun."

(though I know his father, not him)

Re: Any Kreidler fans in CH?

A Kreidler Florett RS in green.... That was the machine that got young Slammer to swoon back in the day. I never got one but looking a the pictures in Google just now made my heart miss a beat.
The lucky guys who had one in the village were the kings of the roost so to speak, until one kid got a Hercules K50 Ultra in red and yellow one snowy christmas.

I am a bit younger than you but the Florett was still very popular in my time as it was much easier to get it go (a lot) faster than legally allowed compared to any more modern moped or scooter...

The Floretts were great for "tuning" you just had to keep a few pistons spare, if you were good and had a lot of practice you could change a piston in 20 minutes.

My late employer did a cross-EU trip in the '50s on a Terrot, always carried a spare engine!
