I found this DKW KS 200, in ITALY very close to the Gothic line at La Spieza, used as a courier vehicle, according to the former owner.

Hi Alif,

I think it is a DKW, maybe the type KS 200. Here a pic of this motorbike (source of the pic: https://www.autoscout24.de/moto/dkw/dkw-ks-200/).

Best regards

Bert
