    Default Amazing photo collection from the Czech Republic

    If anyone can translate some of the comments about these pictures, it would be great. Computer translation often can't get close with technical stuff like this where being able to read special context and obscure technical terms is important

    -many of the pix in the 50-100 range feature a kneel down inboard 3pt hydro powered by a 2 stroke triple. Looks like the east German car motor? [Wartburg?]
    Surprised they van get any signifivant hp out of that, but they seem to be going 60 + mph.
    Looks affordable too, and fun!/
    Also one pic of a 500cc lay down with a wing across the stern.
    Always wanted to try that.

    Looked up the R-1000 class, yes you were correct the Wartburg was the popular motor back then:
