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,
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). I just really liked the top sheets, I thought I would share them and hoped to learn something too.
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...
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.
