  3. Hi Jon, I just found this topic, i am not such a forum dweller i’m afraid. I’d like to compliment you on your fantastic retoration, the Morris looks absolute fantastic. They are lovely machines, i’ve bought mine in januari 2014 and got it restored in 2015. If you need any information you may always contact me.

  6. Hello all, Some of you might already found it or saw my spamming on the Morris Commercial C8 Facebook pages, but last year i started a small side project to gather and share information about wartime Morris Commercial trucks. Especially the C8, but also other types will be added during time. Also i am building a register of Morris Commercial C8 owners, so please send in the details of your truck to get these added. Anonymous, if necessary, no problem. If you'd like to contribute, or correct, information please do so. Please take a look on http://www.morris-commercial.nl/ and tell me

You've managed to find a special type of the RT98, a so called "Gelände- ausführung" or in english country version. The exhaust is placed higher than on the normal RT98's. But, this machine was officially never used by the German Army. The only DKW bike that was used by the German Army was the NZ350 and NZ350-1. Also the SB200 was used by the Luftwaffe.
