My Father once spoke to me and said "The way you look at your bike is the way I see My children, I look past the imperfections and rough surfaces to the beauty of the finished product."

Good idea - some photos in front of the store will be a nice piece of history.
Prepare yourself to find the store a little bit hidden in a small residential area where noone would really expect it.
Maybe you also can get inside (and shop), because Dieter's son "Rainer" has already told that he will continue the business.
For those who don't know the background:
Rainer is so to say the namesake of the shop, and Dieter was his father.
Dieter has supported Rainer over years in his BMX-career, what has ultimately created the shop.

Tipp: Give him a call (shop number) and announce your time for arrival maybe a day before, so you can visit the store smile

I was browsing through the thread, seeing part of a mint baby blue PK and thinking - WOW - that must be the nicest bike in the shop! And it is not pictured complete:

To then later discover it is "just" a 2011 retro:

The quick tell could have been the front tire already in the first picture.

You realize that this is a modern retro and all the other bikes are vintage?

According to the read above, his son is continuing the business.

Actually, his son Rainer was a pretty good racer back in the day. He rode for Skyway amongst others. Also, the shop is / was called Rainer's Bike Shop as a tribute to him. R.I.P. Dieter! He was a good dude.

Re: my visit to Dieter Schadowski's bmx museum in Karlsruhe, Germany (EU)

I still have one of his frames, the Race Inc RA-9 in 'My Bikes'. I'm sorry to hear he has passed away, I recall he was not happy when I said I was thinking about buying parts to build up the frame - he wouldn't sell them to me! Well it remains unbuilt Rainer, and I'm not quite sure what to do with it now, too small for me, always was but I still bought it. I bought it as a pinnacle of Alu welding, quite beautiful if you're into that sort of thing. I did get most of the parts but maybe it should remain a showpiece.
