Bang­ing the KR200 drum

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

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
