Heinkel Tourist: Under Repair
I spotted this Heinkel Tourist at Carl's a couple of weeks ago. Other than the ongoing repairs to the paint, it looked like a near mint example to me. I'd love to have one of my own some day but it'll have to wait until I get the couple of Vespa and Lambretta that I want first!
While admiring the Heinkel I couldn't help but notice the size of the windshield on the scooter. Absolutely huge and although I initially thought it would only suit a big scooter designed for touring like the Heinkel, I've seen at least one similarly large windshield on a Vespa PX unlike my own. In fairness, it didn't look too bad and in fact it looked quite good. Must give it a try some day...
