Happy New Year to all!
Regret did very little to my DKW in 2017 as I was using my jeep! 2018 will be the year of the bike! Two items of interest: I have discovered after much research the sidecar on my 1939 350NZ is a 1938 Simard, manufactured in Lyon, France. I wonder how a German motorcycle got a French sidecar?

Also, I want to put some markings on my bike, any idea what the Luftwaffe would have used? My bike came from Laon in Picardy, and there was a big Luftwaffe bases at Laon-Athies, so I am thinking of using Luftwaffe marks. The last squadron at Laon-Athies in August 1944 was Nachtjagdgeschwader 5.

all best, Chris

Contact Tom in Poland, he can make any markings you want.
He has complete sets for usual markings like tirepressure, tankmarkings a.s.o.
But he has (and can make) all div- / comp- / and tactical markings wich you desire.
Maybe he needs samples.

Just google Nachtjagdgeschwader 5, they had an interresting symbol on their planes and vehicles.
