Out of the shadow of the Duck: the R4

ER Classics Desktop 2022

Not long ago, we had a message about AMK reader Hans Beltman and his love. They were to the Italian Republic traveled. Inside. And in an R4.

According to Hans, that was no problem if you were not in a hurry, and not a passenger focused on comfort.

In the January issue of AMK - Best wishes in this respect! - are the history and strengths and weaknesses of the R4.

The unexpected possibilities of such a box are clear to us. An acquaintance was on vacation with his wife and children about thirty years ago Italy. On the way Ruud saw the motorcycle of his dreams simply for sale along the road.

It took a day of negotiating with hands and foot language. But then he had his MV ...

The family, the seats and the luggage were removed from the R4 and sent on by train. The MV was largely dismantled and crammed into the R4.

Not long after that vacation, the wedding went wrong.

But that had nothing to do with the R4.

The R4 history. In the January issue of AutoMotorKlassiek due.
