Something more unusual than a Ural

Post by mauricedonini » Thu May 17, 2018 9:03 am

Hi,

For those that are tired of riding a 'run of the mill' Russian motorcycle.

No reserve.

Guesses on what it will go for?

Enjoy

That is one of the nicest I have seen. Even has the rubber street pads. Wish it was still out fitted like the last picture!

My guess 55k.

Beautiful. The handle-bars on those things steered the tracks. But the front wheel was just there because... it would help the operator "think" he was steering with them. Only the Germans would come up with a phycology engineered towards the driver/operator like that.
Very cool machine.

When turning I wonder if the lateral forces on that front end tore off a tire or two during operations on hard pack.

Ausgezeichnet!


Steering the Kettenkrad was accomplished by turning the handlebars: Up to a certain point, only the front wheel would steer the vehicle. A motion of the handlebars beyond that point would engage the track brakes to help make turns sharper. It was also possible to run the vehicle without the front wheel installed and this was recommended in extreme off-road conditions where speed would be kept low.[1]

You have to be careful about buying a Kettenkrad. They were produced into the post war era for the German Forestry Service.

Given the explosion of the "ATV" market in recent years, I'm surprised someone has brought the Kettenrad back to life.

I got to ride on the back of one many years ago, the owner said it was assembled post war in France for farm use if I remember correctly.
