Hi, Stukenbrok bike from Einbeck?

Ever heard about "Gruppe Neupert"? In April 1945 a group of three Hitlerjungen, 15 to 17 years old, and an officer named Neupert, all from Einbeck, climped their bikes and rode them to the village of Lüthorst and attacked the advancing Americans. All the kids and the officer died. Sure they rode Stukenbrok bicycles, produced in their hometown.

That bicycle might not be correct for a Wehrmacht bike, but it seems to be perfect as memorial for those kids.

What do you think? I repainted it in black. The ammo box is an original one.

Hey Johnny,

Check out velo-classic.de and download the catalog. Inside there is a picture showing a way you can remove the cranks using a drift and a hammer. Sorry it's all in German but the picture gets the point across. It worked well for me. Good luck!

Recently picked up this German bicycle in the area around Moscow from an older gentleman in a village. I know it's not a 'Truppenfahrrad', but there was fighting in this area and also the fact that it's in Russia leads me to believe that it was either A: used by the German army and then captured as war booty or B: simply taken from Germany as war booty.

and why can't I upload images?

Hi guys!

I see a lot of great bikes in this thread. But as I see its hard to find a Manteltrager or Zeltbahn halterung to finish the restoration for even every truppenfahrrad owner/collector.

Why do I write here? Because it is not a problem today

I was lucky three days ago and I have found 13 Manteltrager pairs (26 items) in old german trench not far from Minsk, Belarus.

I am not a german bike collector but I am able to help you with these details. Most of them are stamped by manufactures code "erl" and WaA.

If someone help me to attach pictures it will be great cause I am a fresh man here and I cant do that. Email me.

Three weeks ago I snagged another bicycle to make a second reproduction "WWII European Civilian Bicycle." I was certain I was picking up a 1960s bicycle. The previous owner (a WWII reenactor) had been using it at events, but had simply painted over some of the rust, and it needed work.

Here is the starting material I had to work with --




As I started stripping off the excessive paint, I could see a number stamped in the frame --




Can anyone tell me why a supposedly 1960s bicycle has "1943" stamped in the frame?!?




So, blah blah blah... I repainted the entire bike, swapped out some parts, and this is how it looks at present --




I have a few modifications remaining (I will be mounting the headlamp today or tomorrow), but this will easily pass authenticity inspection as a civilian bicycle at the next reenactment.

The 1943 marking is postwar made.
On period one the year was stamped on the sattle support.

Best,
Luca

Saved these today from a garden in Munich.
The other one is a Brennabor No.1 from 1907.

Am I correct in assuming the Hercules is a Truppenfahrrad?
It is dated 1943.

Thanks,
taube.
