Info on German Motorrad - Rob Arndt

I have seen the article on your site by Rob Arndt, about the Killinger and Fruend German Motorrad. I am extremely interested in obtaining any more information you can provide on this prototype motorcycle, as my wife's father was one of the designers. We actually have one picture of the bike from her father. If you could put me in contact with Rob Arndt who wrote the article, or give me any information at all about where the info for the article was obtained, I would be very greatful. Please email me at

Re: Info on German Motorrad - Rob Arndt

The primary source of information on this unique motorcycle is from the October 1938 issue of Motorrad magazine published in Germany. A subsequent secondary source comes from an OOP military reprint of a US Army Technical Intelligence Bulletin from either May or June 1945 that shows the 4 photos of the captured machine which was found at a German military depot. I no longer possess that book, but I think it might have listed the location. Sorry. Some have claimed it was found where the 17cm K72 Grille was found, but that seems bogus as the British captured that machine, not the US Army.

Re: Info on German Motorrad - Rob Arndt

Could you supply some sane info re the Germans and Hitler in particular? All we hear is how horrible the Germans are, yet the reason Hitler was so angry was because of what the moneychangers were doing to Germany and Europe in his day. All we hear is the product of wartime propaganda, not what the conditions were that caused Hitler to do what he did. Thanks.%20void(0);
