I am glad it is finding a happy home. probably wherein it roamed the fields and streets of Holland in late 1944 delivering messages to Major General Urquhart.

Restoration is progressing!!
Completely blasted and are currently awaiting parts. Engine was in good shape, and we believe was never opened up (except for the cylinder).

Back in Holland!!!
There is somebody on this list who will get this (I'm not naming names....): A Welbike is just a 70lb. piece of Dutch carry on luggage AFTER you wrap it in cardboard and put a string handle on it!!!!

Been there, helped with that project back in the day ;)
