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.

On display is the prototype of the "NSU Gebirgskarette", a small full tracked vehicle, which should become the post war successor of the Kettenkrad. It never went into production.

Arsenalen at Strängnäs (Sweden, around 50 miles west from Stockholm) is a museum for historic military vehicles, which was opened by HM King Carl XVI. Gustaf in June 2011.

It merges three former swedish collections of historic military vehicles.

The museum's curator (Museichef) owns a Kettenkrad himself.
