This document is a 36 page English only version of the original handbook for Isetta owners.  The text was taken from the original booklet given to my father when he purchased the white Isetta shown on the home page of this web site. 

The English text was scanned, and converted to a Word file.  The photographs on each page were also scanned and placed on the appropriate page. The original German translation was not altered except for the correction of several misspelled words and a few reference errors.  The document can be printed on 8-1/2" x 11" paper.
