Check out the motorcycle, looks like a
BMW R/75 or a Zundapp KS750 w/sidecar the
rider is a paratrooper on a mesage run.
The German army used motorcycles for
reconnaissance and liaisons or other duties every unit had the bikes.


The Russians were impressed with both the
BMW and the Zundapp, and even copied them down to the last detail.
The Zundapp was known as the Cossack M-67 and the BMW was known as the Ural M-72


DKW: Das Klenie Wunder
NAU: Neckar und SUlm
BMW: Bayische Motoren Werke
Zundapp: Zunendung Ignition Apparat Machine

NSU Stands for Neckar und Sulm..NSU, but my favorite is Zundapp: Stands for
Zunendung Ignition Apparat Machine, whats the
old saying "To error is human"
