    Has anyone got a good clear photo of the rear of one of these, or a plan drawing?

    I'm trying to get a better idea of the exhaust position.

    cheers,

    Sadly, this is only a side view:

    TK-S

    However, the website is pretty interesting.

    That bottom one looks more like a Belgium T15 to me.

    I'd dispute the grocery capacity until I was blue in the face... okay so I'd have to go shopping daily but hey ho what a small price to pay eh? Shame there's only three of them around.

    There was a story in the Daily Mail last year of a chap who used a kettenkrad for going shopping. The lorry driver who likes to unwind by taking his German World War II tank for a spin | Mail Online

    Go on then, what's the first?

    Ahhh, the Kettenkrad. Seriously, some company should make a modern version. I'm sure they could sell 10,000 around the world!
