Time Capsule
« on: May 19, 2017, 09:54 PM »
Took a long overdue trip to Germany last week to visit the time capsule that is Rainer's bike shop. We'd arranged to meet up with Dieter,Rainer's dad and owner/curator of the museum and thus spent an afternoon knee deep in 1980's BMX heaven. Our hosts couldn't have been more welcoming. It was great to crack open a few beers and chat about this sport that's been in our blood for the last 30 plus years with like-minded people. The collection is amazing. Original race & freestyle bikes,NOS and original parts and memorabilia fill the shop. So glad we made it happen. Here's some photos...

Wow! what an awesome place!  :4_17_5: so is it actually a museum? someones personal collection? or is it a shop that sells stuff? If its a museum and there for life that would be cool but if its a shop that doesn't sell? does anyone think what a waste of parts that will never be used?  ::) interested to know the story guys?  :daumenhoch:

OK,so it's a museum but Dieter does also sell old school parts through his website. Just email him if there's anything you're after to finsih that grail build. He may be able to help you out.
All the completes in the museum are made up from Rainer's bikes that he used to race in the '80s plus some have been donated by his old bmx buddies plus there are NOS completes that have been built using old stock too. Dieter is the passionate collector. Rainer is into american autos now but does still cherish his memories of racing bitd and totally understands where us old school fanatics are coming from. As far as it being a waste of parts by not selling them... well I guess you could say that about anyone that has held on to anything they've ever bought. A 'Collector' does exactly that,collects. A dealer buys and sells,usually for profit. At the end of the day the museum is a fantastic place if you're into this hobby/sport and we had a blast during our visit.

From experience I can tell that Dieter is very supportive in regrads of giving advice, and if you talk to him you'll notice right away he still has the love for BMX.
What I also can tell from experience, as I've bought a couple of items of him, his website isn't updated on a constant basis.
The other thing is, if you're after rare parts you better go there and have look youself as he sometimes either doesn't tell you what's available or just don't know by heart. However, for sure he's a top man.

His shop/museum is about 250km away from where I live. I was planning on going there last month, but couldn't make it. But what I can offer to you radsters is to have a look for you if you tell me what exactly you are looking for (with a picture please  :) ). You can't expect to get real bargains there, as Dieter knows exactly the value of an item.
Don't worry about me trying to benefit from that offer either, I would never do that.  :daumenhoch:
