Vintage D-Rad Sound
My bro-in-law loves "D-Rad" motorcycles. These vintage bikes were produced between 1922 and 1932 in Berlin, Germany, by the "Deutsche Industriewerke AG".
Here he starts one, which he restores since 1984. Now it seems to be complete - nothing but the number plate is still missing ... ;-)
This 500 cc single cylinder thumper is from 1925, means 86 years old, and the guys in those times really kew what is a motorbike's best sound ... thumping nicely dug, dug, dug ... ;-)
Originally, the sound is much more loud as You may hear in this video, of course - the micro was immediately closed by the cam's automatic in order to avoid damages. In reality, it is loud as anything ... ;-)))
Mein Schwager mag Oldtimer-Motorräder. Am liebsten sind ihm D-Räder. Gut, so etwas kann jedem passieren ... ;-)
Die D-Räder wurden zwischen 1922 und 1932 von der "Deutsche Industriewerke AG" in Berlin Spandau gebaut.
Hier startet er seinen 500er D-Rad-Eintopf von 1925, an dem er seit 1984 herumbastelt. Schon fast fertig - fehlt jetzt nur noch das komische Ding am Ende ... genau: das Nummernschild ... ;-)
Der Sound kommt übrigens hier im Video nur sehr gedämpft rüber, die Automatik hat das Kameramikro sofort runtergeregelt, um Schäden zu vermeiden. "In echt" fliegt einem selbstverständlich die Mütze vom Kopf. ;-)
PS: Die Nummerntafel ist seit Juli 2011 auch dran. Und das D-Rad läuft ...

The 1942 Harley Davidson WLA motorcycle and Harley Davidson XA motorcycle were two models Harley designed for the United States military during World War II.
Though rival Indian also supplied motorcycles to the U.S. military during World War II, the majority of those used in battle were Harley-Davidson WLAs.
Wearing the requisite Olive Drab paint, these were 45-cubic-inch V-twins fitted with special equipment for wartime use. Items such as an ammo box, machine-gun scabbard, and rear carrier are obvious; less so are the special "blackout lights" front and rear that projected only a small sliver of light in an effort to avoid detection.
In all, roughly 80,000 WLAs were built, many being sold as surplus after the war.
OK Supreme 1927 motorcycle with Bradshaw engine
OK Supreme 1927 349 cc OHV oil cooled Bradshaw
OK motorcycles were manufactured by the firm of Humphries & Dawes in Birmingham from 1899 till 1939: from 1926, when one of the controlling partners left the firm, the company was renamed OK Supreme. The motorcycles were built at the Hall Green Works in Birmingham. The company had some success in racing in the twenties and was sufficiently well established to overcome the downturn in trade in the Depression years.
In the years before the Great War the company fitted among others "Precision" engines, in the early twenties Union and Villiers two stroke power units were fitted. In the mid-twenties the range consisted of two stroke models of 292 and 348 cc cc, the sports tourer OHV Bradshaw and sv and ohv Blackburne power units. Plenty of choice in engines!
From the late twenties the company used mainly sv and ohv JAP engines, although there was also a model with OK ohc engine for some years. Granville Bradshaw designed several oil cooled engines; the first was a 500 cc ohv flat twin which was used by Zenith in 1920. In 1921 the range was extended with a 350 cc ohv single and a 1000 cc V-twin. The engines were produced by James Walmsley & Co in Preston and marketed by Gilbert Campling. From 1925 the engines were built by Dorman in Stafford. The longstroke Bradshaw engine -- used by OK from 1924 to 1928 - has bore and stroke dimensions of 68x96 mm and mechanical lubrication. The machine has a 3 speed gearbox and Brown & Barlow carburettor. It weighs about 200 lbs, so it's a light and agile machine.
