History:
Sven bought the 1200 at the end of 1996 from it's second owner. Until today it has remainedunwelded and still wears mainly it's first paintjob. Until 2003 Sven drove the bug in stock condition, then first modifications towards Cal Look took place. Since a Californa trip during his vacation in 2004, Sven is completely going for the west coast style, so he took the opportunity to go shopping in the States. IDAs, Scat crankshaft and rods, Mahle pistons and barrels and a FK10 camshaft went along with him back to Germany.
