That bike is actually pretty neat looking. Town set numero two. Let’s keep the streak up. Does Huwbot take requests?

Back when cars were cars, and bikes were bikes.

This is probably my favorite classic town car. So simple but beautiful, and so much fun and play capabilities. I specifically remember loving to build the trailer for some reason.

I was visiting my parents who already had given me all my old Lego sets years before. I had gone through and built all the sets I could with the instructions I had. There were still many pieces left over and so I tried to hunt down which sets I had remaining. I could figure out some from my memory and some based on unique printed pieces but there were some gaps and some sets I knew I had but just didn’t remember. was super suprised to find these instructions! Anyway, I was visiting recently and found a box of odd things from my childhood - including the instructions to this set! Another set found! I haven’t built it yet (three kids with one on the way doesn’t leave too much time for Lego!) but I was just so happy to find another piece of my childhood.

I guess riding a bike without a headlight IS pretty rebellious.

I loved how every section of the set is in different color. I don't have the set but I MOCed a similar car.

Lol, I just built Paradisa set 6416 Poolside Paradise and it comes with an almost identical car in black (with a little less pieces at the back).

This is a really lovely Town set. Love looking at these.

I fell in love with this car when I first saw it in the 1990 LEGO catalogue. I think this was the first set to ever have that 3x4 slope piece with mudguard, which made it impossible to replicate with pieces from my already large collection of LEGO. I had to have it, and thankfully not being a large set it was easy to buy with some saved up pocket money. Such a good little set.

Good set for it's time, classic early 90s style.

Sleek looking 4 stud wide sports cabrio car and trailer, and black bike with nice number tiles on it.

I got this one on my 10th or 11th birthday. I still have it - along with another copy in MISB condition. I remember that I created some scenery for this set and #6590 based on the baseplate from #6270. Good times. :-)

My very first Lego Set. I loved to play with that so much!
Most of all it connects to very exciting memories!

FLASHBACK: West Berlin, 1989.
My parents went with me and my brother through the shiny city and to an amazing shopping mall on their 1-day-only-trip (we were forced to return after that directly). They bought me this set with their very limited Begrüßungsgeld (German for "welcome money") a free 100 DM gift initiative from the Wester German government to welcome GDR citizens. And my brother got a set from outer space: the freaking 6830 aka Space-Patroller!

It was like a eyeopening experience not comparable to anything else in the GDR as we didn't have any shopping malls and officially no real Western brands as they were seen coming from the capitalistic evil Enemy and therefore seen as forbidden.

However, a small niche for buying Western goods was offered to GDR citizens.
In so-called "Intershops" you may find some LEGO sets yet with inflated prices being 5x higher as you can only pay in Deutsch Mark and exchange rates from GDR to Deutschmark were very poor (5:1)!
