Erich Schenkel 1956  RRR 2005

During the late Fifties and early Sixties Erich Schenkel and Norbert Mylius successfully demolished their scooters in rallye events and race trials. More than two decades later they started to search for them again.

They retrieved them from old garages and sheds - neglected and mostly in miserably pitiful condition.

 

 



The two school friends fixed and restored the small vehicles, which had been so dear to them and made them roadworthy again; hence - RRR was born!

 

Custos Erich Schenkel, who sadly passed away in 2002, took care of housing, acquisition and trading of the scooters and microcars of the RRR collection.
He eventually specialized in collecting and restoring Wurlitzer jukeboxes and rare treasures of the 50’s.

Preparator Dr. Norbert Mylius participates in numerous European events with RRR vehicles. As a historian, he researches origin and original condition of the small oldtimers, builds up the comprehensive RRR archive and writes numerous articles for international motor magazines.

After more than 25 years of dedication to restoring and collecting, the two wished for no less, than a well run museum, to exhibit their rare scooters and microcars.
As of today the RRR collection consists of 143 scooters and microcars, manufactured from 1948 to 1971 and 24 Wurlitzer jukeboxes, the complete output of the 1950’s.

A good share of the collection, vehicles as well as Wurlitzers, are exhibited at RRRollipop schauen – the museum in the center of Eggenburg.
Renate Schenkel-Lerner dedicates herself to showcase her fathers and Norbert’s vintage treasures, which she affectionately refers to as “most valuable scrap”. She creates lively and alternating exhibits, full of fresh ideas that not only appeal to technically oriented visitors.
