sorry to highjack your thread ,but I was wondering are this type of emblem common on wartime German bikes as I have what I have been told is a wartime German bike with a similar shield that says Bismark,I assumed this was the makers name but could be wrong
HPL2008 darn that wall for coming down.
Germany marked on a swastica is China or U S A
Prost ! Steve.
"The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
