Great post. I've been waiting to meet Martin Buckley for years.

The K70 was supposed to be the Ro80 successor with a larger rotary powerplant but with the impending demise of NSU, it became a VW product.

I think it was the first VW watercooled? The engine was very similar to the NSU1200 with individual rocker covers.

Well I know Petrolicious videos can be "light and fluffy" but that one would disappear at the mention of a breeze.
