    Default 1942 Truppenfahrrad question

    Hello,


    I have this TruFa and it has been repainted so I cannot see any markings under the paint, has Torpedo rear, quick release handlebars. Tires are not original and seat is not as well, mainly use for reenactment but original tires and seat are at friends house. I am mainly concerned about the front tag, have not seen one like this with WaA before. but my knowledge is limited on these bicycles.

    Torpedo bearing is dated 1935 with letter block of “K”.

    I think the tag is fake and was put on as a replacement for original? I think the bike is a period german civilian bike.

    thank you in advance!

    These are not something I know anything about but that SS Waffenampt code (Wa1) did exist if the card in the photo below is original.

    Further a Heer code to Wa1 is for Berlin-Suhler Waffenwerke, Suhl 1937-40. Don't know if the same codes were used for SS and Heer.

    Yeah, i was hoping that was not SS runes I saw. I get skeptical anytime i see them on “original” items. Maybe original, maybe not? Never seen a TruFa with this tag before so was just curious. But it’s not my area either honestly.

    Thank you for the comment!

    That whole front plate looks suspect to me as you note. But again, we are the blind leading the blind here....

    HAHA. yes. Blind leading the blind for sure! I assume it is a German civilian bike. Rear Torpedo bearing is dated 1935 with the letter “K” manufacture block.

    So i’d assume it’s a 35 made bike or around there of the period.

    The best thing in life is to go ahead with all your plans and your dreams, to embrace life and to live everyday with passion, to lose and still keep the faith and to win while being grateful. All of this because the world belongs to those who dare to go after what they want. And because life is really too short to be insignificant. - Charlie Chaplin
