The ‘Adler to Zundapp Club’ is a group of friends with a common interest in German and Austrian Motorcycles. Anyone with a German motorcycle(up to 1962) can invite themselves to be part of the club.As members are spread all over the country,and it’s not practicable to have runs and meets etc,etc, but twice a year we put on a display of machines in May at the Southern classic Bike Show held at Kempton Park and at the International West Kent Show in August also on the Saturday of that event we take part in the run. As said anyone with a German or Austrian machine is always welcome to take part!

2014, This years display had the most impressive display of German machines! With 4 Adlers,NSU Supermax,2 x TWN’s/Zundapps,Dkw and  a Zundapp KS 601 with sidecar and a real brute of a motorcycle a ‘wehrmacht ‘Zundapp KS 750 with a 2 ratio gearbox 8 speeds and a reverse also a 1938 Victoria KR20 in Wehrmacht condition. A total of 15 machines!! A German man spoke to me in the middle of the show saying’ It was most wonderful display he has seen of German Machines’  DANKE! Below is a utube clip showing this wonderful display!!
