Known History

The Kettenkrad type HK 101 was one of the most unusual machines from the Second World War. The front had a fork and a motorcycle wheel. The rear was mounted on tracks and it was powered by a 1478 cc 4-cylinder Opel engine. The bike could ferry two soldiers at the rear, facing rearwards. The production of this military machine began in 1941. Narrow, very manoeuvrable and meant for off-road use, it was designed for airborne troops. Single-sided track locking allows the track to rotate on site. The official name "Kleines Kettenkrattrad" was replaced by Kettenkrad, and this small all-purpose tractor was built by NSU till 1948. In the collection of an enthusiast since 1993, the Kettenkrad on offer was certainly partly restored in the past. It comes with its standard equipment such as an ax and a shovel hung on the sides of the vehicle. Its patina is homogeneous and the vehicle has hardly been moved in recent years, and thus will need an overall mechanical overhaul. This French registered all-purpose machine is relatively rare on the market and will amaze you by its ability to cross the most impossible of terrains.
