Banging the KR200 drum
With reference to the Buying Classics
Abroad article on the Messerschmitt KR200 ( CCW, 14 June), I would like to point out a couple of things.
In ‘How to bag the best deal’ in point one, it advises to look for rust round the brake servo.
As the owner of a KR200 for more than 30 years, I would point out that the car has cable brakes, so it has no servo.
Also connected with this is point five – since it has cable brakes there are no wheel cylinders to leak! Also, the KR200 is fitted with drum brakes all round, not discs as stated. ❚ John Rogerson, Galashiels
