As seen in text (i posted the english text) other countries are told (Italia, POland, Czesc Republic...) but nothing about Greece even in the historic resume

but nothing about Greece

BalkanE, No :shock: surprises there. Though history is made by what is recorded, often it is made by what is left out. ;)

Well, I really know that a greek version wont be done. Does any body believe that apart from a conversion?

I saw on ebay today an Italian version with one front light. I know that the US version has been out, with a French and a Chinese version to follow. Are there any other versions (like oil fired ones) planned? Anyhow, which one would be the most suitable for a Greek conversion? I saw Greek THgs with no lights front and back, one headlight only, one small back light, one headlight and a side light but there is no definitive list yet. Shall we start one?
