    Not really 'found' German WWII half track bike

    I was in a stubble field looking for some coins when a guy from the village took the chance to chat a bit about whats in the fields...
    He drove over with a 1943 half track bike in very good condition....

    Unfortunately no. But it was cool to see such a vehicle in the wild and not in a museum.

    That appears to be a working 1/2 track bike. How cool to have the guy drive up to you.

    Saw one in Saving Private Ryan. Always wondered just what the the idea was behind them. Scout vehicle for rough terrain I imagine. Precursor to todays ATVs

    Westfront, definitely a great find, now how to get it home. Thanks for sharing your story and photos - the half-track bike is now at the top of my bucket list. Good luck with your hunts. Walt
