XJ900 Spotted in Velbert Germany

Post by Nelsonmd » Fri Jul 15, 2016 2:05 pm

I was in the Dusseldorf area for a couple weeks and spotted an old XJ900. The seat is duct taped, but otherwise it's in great condition.

And some interesting old tools I spotted in the Bell tower of the Koln Cathedral. Lets play guess what that tool is. I know most of them, but there are a couple in there I couldn't figure out.

And some bunnies wearing wigs... because yeah...

And here is the cool Schwebebahn in Wuppertal. I believe it's theonly one of it's kind left in the world under regular operation. It banks around the corners which is fun, because it swings out.

Hand crank drill press, a rather large tumbler and an uncovered band saw.

It's an old overhead belt driven drill press, I agree on the band saw, and the thing next to the big tumblers appears to be some kind of reciprocating saw.
