    No I guess you are right, I have tried earlier to google Adler, but I didn`t find just this.

    For one thing, Googling "Adler" wouldn't help much, as the bird is far from being an Eagle. Looks more like a Swift of some such bird. William

    As William says, it does not appear to be an eagle, but could certainly
    have been taken from a commandeered vehicle.........

    Mascots from German Adler cars looked like this (or a variation on this):

    Some vehicles also seem to have had the same badge as appears on the bike shown in a post above. You can just see it in this picture:

    and others had a great big eagle spread across the grill:

    This one is a circular badge type like BMW and Mercedes-Benz used. I suppose with this type it's possible that a bird like the one shown could be fitted under the original mascot, perhaps as an aftermarket piece?
