Where can I buy a Kettenkrad?


I'm often asked, where one can buy a real Kettenkrad. To buy a Kettenkrad is not an easy job but here is one source, where you can start your search:


Milweb, run by Nigel Hay, is the biggest marketplace for all kinds of historic military vehicles. Here are sometimes Kettenkrads for sale.

Have a look at "Classifieds". Most Kettenkrads were offered in the "Motorcycles & Bicycles" section.

The website is well worth a visit if you are looking for any historic military vehicle to buy.

The Kettenkrad at Wikipedia:

A well-known vehicle like the Kettenkrad is mentioned on WIKIPEDIA, the free internet encyklopedia.

Sorry, this website is not about the Panzerkampfwagen V "Panther", it is about the bicycles and motorcycles from the German company Pantherwerke AG, which were produced them in my hometown Braunschweig from 1907 to 1962.
