Hi Alif,
In believe it's a Zündapp KS 750 although the fender strut looks strange not attached at the wheel hub.
Cheers,
Max

Hi,

Not Zundapp, definitely a BMW R12, the round BMW badge can be seen on the fuel tank, but looks like it has been painted over, very early LSSAH vehicle.

Agreed, leonard paul. That explains the fender strut location. It's an R12.

This one I'm pretty certain is a Zündapp KS 600. I wonder what they find so amusing in the window of the Funkwagen? :lol:
What is the bike in the background with the flared fender?

Hi, just need confirmation: is this BMW R75 or Zündapp?

Hi Alif,
The front fork looks more like a Zündapp Ks 600.

These photos represent the same machine I think. Can anyone please tell me what sort of 'cycle it is? The engine layout looks curious, perhaps an in-line twin? Also what does the registration show? It has right-hand drive, so is it Czech or perhaps Austrian?

Hello AliRafik,
I'm not sure what it is but it doesn't look like a BMW.

Sorry, I don't have a clue. Hopefully someone more expert in bikes will have the answer. But I'm equally curious aout the nationality of the soldiers in the pic with the Wehrmacht NCO.
Cheers,
Max
