1941-42 German Army Bike

Tim is test riding a German Army bike that one of our customers had us
reassemble after it had been shipped from Germany. This not something
we see every day. The bike is heavy, but it carried substantial
equipment. One accessory was a grenade box.

Our customer is gathering an interesting collection. Earlier this
year he had us assemble a bike ridden by Hitler Youth which was
estimated to have been ridden in 1937. We believe it was 1937 when a
large group of Hitler Youth toured England. We were intrigued if the
bike might have made that tour. History can be so interesting.
