WHERE did you find it ?
Fantastic.
Reminded me of my now departed Uncle / Godfather who was in Holland in WW2 and had official cause to find himself on army bikes from time to time, somehow even on leave too.

A local guy found it while researching vintage bikes. I'm glad you liked it.

Very good pics, loved it.
It reminded me of three friends who took off one year when school let out. one HD Sportster, one KZ900, and one Kawi 500 triple. They went about 3000 miles round trip, with one blanket each, a few wrenches, and about $100 each. They really roughed it and had the time of their life. I already had a job and got left at home.
