  1. Here's the page with the engine numbers, the 1937 date on your engine is correct, as it shows up as such. The good thing about these bikes is that they were never made postwar, and and were replaced in 1940 with the RT125, I have many, many original black and white pictures in my files with German army use. Cheers, Lex
  2. Ok, had a look, and it's from 1936, see scan of page, those are the frame numbers, that is the second number down from your headstock plate, the top number is the original engine number, so engine has been replaced at some point, but this happened a lot after the war. Have no idea about the DVLA, as I'm in Holland, but can imagine if you add these scans to your application they can see that it is from 1936. Cheers, Lex
  3. Can you post a picture of the headstock and plate please? and the engine number, I have the book with all the DKW numbers. Cheers, Lex
  4. I guess you're lucky! it's on page 35 of the 2-3 October Ruddington sales, lot No. 816. Land Rover 88 G.P. Vehicle (series 88/IIa) No sale price. Will make a scan tonight. Cheers, Lex
  5. Stanley, I have some unfired projo's for these, all A/T. tracer has been removed, let me know if interested. Was the AMX with Diesel engine modified by Sabiex from Belgium? I was once many years ago in their factory, where they were refurbishing them for the Mexican? army, a sight to see!! Cheers, Lex
  6. Here's mine that I acquired from the states, it came from an 8th Airforce vet in Florida, that "liberated"it from a UK airfield when he went home in their bomber after his tour was up. Restored a long time ago, and not running at the moment, but have all ignition parts, so should be able to get it running again, I Always call it "The Dying Flea" for obvious reasons. Cheers, Le
  7. Hello Kingsley, I know this bike, and the seller, he asked me to bring it over to the UK, but still unsure of when I'm coming over. If anyone needs the canvas grips for the throttle and clutch side, I had another batch made, same as on the restored bike above (that was from my prev. batch) you will have to glue a piece of canvas on yourself. The throttle clamp thingy is also in the making, but not the alu casting (yet) Cheers, Lex
  8. Alan, no, have not come accross any of that stuff, it was usually not sold to the public, but given to friendly countries I believe, most of that went through the Crown Agents. Cheers, Lex
  9. Hahaha! you can use that one made from tin foil, that I dropped off at Jan's place for you! Cheers, Lex PS, this might be the first part for an early Triumph for me! have started with worse bits.
  10. Very nice work, as usual! in the meantime I have bought this butchered original, maybe Jan has some reject pieces to make this whole again? Cheers, Lex
  11. Ok, Gary, sorry have no ino at all on those, but there is some restoration pages on one somewhere here?? Cheers, Lex
  12. Gary, do you mean the US one, as pictured below, or the Brit 2 wheeled one?? Cheers, Lex
  13. The vehicles are usually Ok, but axis uniforms is "not done" Cheers, Lex
