Dream on.....?

So...we'll be digging through old dirty shipping containers tomorrow to unearth an old WW2 motorcycle and sidecar...anyway that is according to the present owner.

I have no idea what we will find....or even if it actually is a WW2 German motorcycle.

Apparantly this bike / sidecar was sitting in an old semi trailer for eons, where the previous owner stashed it. The semi trailer was an on old 40's "art deco" looking rounded affair that someone wanted so bad that they purchased a shipping container and hauled it to the property to replace the old "deco" semi trailer.

At some point the sidecar was removed from the bike so it would fit in its' storage space.

I talked with the owner this morning and he said we might have to do a little digging in the storage containers to find everything.

Sounds like fun to me!

Maybe it is an old Zundapp KS800?

Or maybe a old BMW R12?

Ooohhhh...or maybe an R75?

Or maybe an old Zundapp KS750?

Tomorrow will tell.......I'll have my camera and notebook handy to record serial numbers....or maybe I'll need my Chinese / Russian Dictionary.....

Update coming in a day or two...
