Hi Chris

i managed to drive it accross the airfield a couple of weeks back however no steering and throttle was on full all the time.

pulled the engine, gearbox and diff out so i could sort out the brakes. Did that on saturday, found out diff was leaking so need to fix that, oil sump has a hole in it so i need to get that welded up then i can put it all back in.

hope to solve the leaky diff this weekend.

really don't think i will be able to get it to any shows this year.

probably will run it a bout at the next bruntingthorpe open day which i think is on 30th August (DATE NOT CONFIRMED).

check out kettenkrad on youtube as i posted a video of me driving with no steering

regards

philip

Hi everyone - it has been a long time coming and it has been a difficult decision but i have decided to sell my kettenkrad

since my last post the restoration has been completed and the kettenkrad is now a real beauty. check out the pictures over on vw166.com and whermacht awards search for kettenkrad in paint on there and in the german vehicles sub forum on vw166

anyway - it is a feb 44 build with side skirts (they were deleted in 44 but mine still had them when i got it) originality - well it is not original. If you want an original expect to pay over £100,000.

mine is original hull, wheels, tracks, diff, gearbox, forks

repro - front wheel, fuel tanks, rear seat, locker boxes.

superb paint job and marked 5th heavy company of HG division - battle group bologna.

post war engine - early 50's. Starts on the button. 12volt conversion with loads of battery power. electric fuel pump fitted absolutely no starting issues. New radiator.

reason for sale - well parents getting on and need to take care of them. Converting garage to granny annex so needs must

here are a few vids of the kk

this is a really fantastic machine and it is a shame to let it go

looking for £75,000 for it - priced to sell

if anyone is interested please could you email me - philip.studfast@btconnect.com

part ex available

cheers

philip
