Books, manuals and parts lists.

Information on most European dealers was provided by Kees van der Heiden. He notes:

“Personally, I have had good experiences with Uli’s. They are not the cheapest, but they are “commercially correct” and they accept credit cards. Overall I can’t promise you a profit from ordering in Germany, because the dollar is weak and the transport costs are high. . . . . those dealers do exports on mail order base, although not all of them accept VISA. They are all /2 and maybe /5, /6 specialists, except Theofried Jeckel, with whom Sven-Eric from Sweden does all his business. Personally, I like Uli’s for their prompt service and great parts availability. It is said that Stemler even has more parts, but I had nothing (but) problems with their service.”
