If you have an historical interest, in particular W
World War 2, then please read about our previous and current restorations, from a Kettenkrad (like the one used in Saving Private Ryan) a captured Ural M72, originally a Russian motorbike, a Panzer 38t and two 3ton Half Track Prime movers from 1943 all currently under restoration.
The tank is a Czech design from 1938 that was made throughout the Second World War during the Nazi occupation of Czecheslovakia.

The below photos show the early stages of restoration when the engine was lifted out of the tank. The engine has since been completely re-built, tested and is now back in the tank and running.
This Ural motorbike was found in from Russia some years ago. In 1936 Russia purchased the production rights, from Germany, to manufacture the BMW R21 under the name of Ural M72 and this is a surviving example.
An original side car for this bike has recently been acquired from Poland that was in need of much restoration. The frame and side wheel can be seen in the photo ready for attaching to the bike to be followed by the body.
