|Vilko Sever of Kapela, Croatia purchased a Honda CR110 racebike from the German
champion Peter Eser, which he raced succesfully. But soon the twostrokes took over, and
he asked his friend Rudolf Kunz to help him aquire a fast Kreidler.
Sever competed for years on various Kreidlers all along planning a machine of his own
name. With support from Janez Imperl of Tomos, Rudolf Kunz and Martin Ziegler, Sever
created the exciting Sever 50GP, adapting Kreidler based engines to the clever Tomos- type
glassfibre- monocoque. These Sever GP bikes were financed by Vilko himself and
made quite an impact on the Yugoslavian championship.
