13 Military Motorcycles

Post by koimaster » November 1st 2020, 9:31am

Though less powerful and protective than the war’s other vehicles, motorbikes were widely fielded in the Second World War. They were useful for messengers and reconnaissance troops, especially in fast-moving formations. Many of the nations involved in the war produced their own versions.

Puch 800
Many of the motorbikes used in the war were civilian models that had been adopted and repainted by the military. The Austrian Puch 800 was one example of this approach, with many units bought by the army straight from the factory. Its most unusual feature was a shallow vee engine which was set across the frame of the bike. It was usually equipped with a sidecar.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
