    I was thinking motorcycle but looked at a few restoration sites dated 1941 bikes and it does not seem to fit ... at least not the BMW.

    Long shot, but it is the cover to the gearing used where the drive shaft comes out of a tank body and then is dropped below to another drive shaft lower than the tank body to which the wheels are attached? (if that makes sense?)

    good guess watchcam, it could be a final drive casing. when i saw it i thought sherman but it's not from a sherman, i've also looked at panther gearbox but couldn't see any similarity. it could also be from a stug or panzer 4 but i can't find any decent pics to compare it so there's not a lot of info i can give, only that it's a gear casing, the 2 large holes are there to allow access to the shaft and bearings.

    Your right chaps, it's the final drive cover off a Pz III or even a STuG. Here's a good pic.
