Trabi

Someone stole my bike last night so I bought a Trabi today. It’s been a mad 24 hours.

  3. A Trabi is a reasonable substitute for a stolen bike. In fact, in probably cost you less than these ultra light, ultra racy Berlin bikes for 1200 EUR. Let me know if you want me to pimp your DDR ride with stereo boomage. I'm good like dat.

    1. It already has stereo boomage. I just need to get a battery for it. The car is only 6V. But the stereo needs 12.

    2. That's as simple as adding a separate 12V car battery to power your boomage. The part where you wire the 12V in tandem with your 6V system (for recharging on the fly) would require someone with more than donut expertise though. I have seen the really old 6V VW bugs get the 12V treatment. It works. Now if only I could fit into the bleedin' Trabi we could roll like da gangstas we IS.
