    Hi everyone,

    I'm sorry I cannot write my posts in German but hope you may be able to help me.

    I am a New zealand author. I have published two best sellers here, my first was a biography of John Britten, builder of the Britten motorcycles. My second was called One Good Run - The Legend of Burt Munro. This was about the subject of the film The World's Fastest Indian.

    I am now completing a biography of the late Kim Newcombe. Many of you will know that Kim came second in the world GP championship on a Koenig motorcycle he designed and built.

    You will also know that a number of other riders did well on Koenig machines in addition to sidecar riders.

    My book covers all this race history and I have spent a number of years getting the information together. However I still need to know more, particulalrly about German club racing and national races where Koenigs competed. I would appreciate any interesting stories or obscure results that are not commonly available. Information on Werner Schwarzel and others in 72 and 73 would be much appreciated as wouyld any good pictures :thumbsup: .

    I intend to publish the book early in the New Year.

    All the best and Merry Christmas
