help with old odd Volkl, German speakers?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

I found these old Volkl's with beautiful top sheets and some German phrases that I can not translate.  any help?  I'm guessing theyare a special/ commemorative  ski.

 

thanks for any info,

Wow. I can only pick up a word or two, but... Are they for sale?

they were at a thrift store for $40.00  too rich for my blood and I've never been a big volkl fan(maybe I've never been on the right ones:dunno).  I just really liked the top sheets, I thought I would share them and hoped to learn something  too.

My German is a little rusty but I'm pretty sure it says "Enjoy these skis now, sooner or later we'll be owned by Mr Coffee"

this is actually written in bavarian dialect: 1. I am I and I drive a völkl ski 2. there is nothing better than something good 3. dream ski

Damn, I thought this was an audio thread.

It's not standard modern German, believe me. And the lettering doesn't help. The firts bit is: "I am and I go on Völkl Ski's" The rest is quite unreadable, even for a Dutchman like myself who had German in school for 12 years...

Vieleicht hast Du meine Übersetzung übersehen?

Oops, my bad!

I had thought of referring this to some Austrian friends whose Facebook posts are unintelligible dialect, then decided it was more than likely not their dialect given they are not from Tyrol or Germany.

many thanks to all the respondents,   I also got a great answer from Katzi in the retro memories thread.  see below:

 

~~No wonder Google Translate wasn't helpful. The writing on the skis isnt German per se , but a Tyrolean or bavarian dialect. It translates to : ' I am me and I ride a Völkl ski' and 'There aint nothing better than something good'. And of course Völkl - dreamski ;)

 

thanks again to all.

From reading that title, I thought Volkl was making audiophile gear at some point!

Don't forget the "Bavarian" before the "dreamski" on the second picture. ;o)

They are cheap ($40), appear to be brand new and undrilled and to be fairly wide.  Why are you not grabbing them?

they were straight skis had been drilled and I was already buying some Dynastar vertical skis.  If they were $20 I would have bought but $40 was too much for me and only 190's too.
