Hi Leonard Paul,

thank You very much for Your informations.
Here an interesting pic of an Austrian motorcycle used by the Wehrmacht, also in Northern Africa: a Puch type S 4. (source of the pic: expired ebay auction).

Regards

Hi Sturm 78,

the Austrian firm Steyr-Daimler-Puch, founded in 1934, also produced motorcycles. The type S 4 is the abreviation for S= sport and 4 for four gears and it was the best of the Puch motorcycles in that time. It was produced from 1934 to 1942. This model was also interesting for the Wehrmacht. So this type was used in the army and airforce.

Regards

Bert

Hi Sturm 78, hi Kerry,

to Your motorbikes You posted. I tried to find these models.

Your motorcycle, Sturm 78, could be a DKW SB 250 or 350, they are very difficult to differentiate.

And Your motorcycle, Kerry, could be a Victoria, maybe one of the KR types. But I´m no expert in motorcycles. So it is more a speculation than a real identification.

Regards

Bert

Hi Sturm 78,

Re Bikes.jpg (post by kerryhoo on 08.11.12 - 18:10) and response (by SIS 5 on 08.11.12 - 19:03) that the pictures depicts a French Rene Gillet G 1.

Please excuse my questioning this.
— the rear "seat" is different,
— the drive chain is on a different side,
— the front mud guard has a different shape,
— the ehaust system is different,
— not to mention the various bits a pieces such as horn, mirror, and even the side car.

Just askin'. :wink:
