    Hi friends, i wonder if any body can help me ID this relic please?
    It was found in a hedge a few miles south of carentan in normandy. The area saw heavy fighting between US 83rd div and german 17th SS panz, i believe...
    The item appears to be a motorcycle wheel, hub?? I just wondered if anybody recognised it, or could point me in another direction to find more about it?
    Many thanks as always...Ww2 us battlefield find... motorcycle?Ww2 us battlefield find... motorcycle?Ww2 us battlefield find... motorcycle?Ww2 us battlefield find... motorcycle?Ww2 us battlefield find... motorcycle?Ww2 us battlefield find... motorcycle?Ww2 us battlefield find... motorcycle?Ww2 us battlefield find... motorcycle?Ww2 us battlefield find... motorcycle?Ww2 us battlefield find... motorcycle?

    Guessing it had around 18 spokes on the hub, but can't recognise what it was from.

    Hmmm ok thanks blackcat... i guess it just could be a bit of farming rubbish! Do you know what us and german motorcycles were definitely used in normandy?

    Americans used Harley Davidson, Indian. Germans used Zundapp, BMW, Dkw, Triumph, the British used BSA, Norton. If you had found other components it might have helped to ID the type of motorcycle.

    US WW2 motorcycles were the Harley and Indian

    It is definitely a hub for a wheel. But for what I can't help.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated
