The Berlin Wall, this iconic symbol of the cold war, was built in 1961 and dismantled in 1989. The infamous wall separated Germany and its families and became a propaganda disaster for East Germany and the communist bloc. On a less tragic note many East Germany Harleys “disappeared” from the motorcycle world. So, when I met in Daytona Wolfgang Knitterscheidt and asked him anout his beautiful 1929 DL sidecar Harley restoration I was only half surprised when he told me he uncovered it in ex East Germany. Wolfgang got it for a bargain but spent almost 3 years of his life making it 99% original (he is working on the remaining 1%). FYI, it was called a 3-cylinder because the generator was sticking up like a cylinder, has 20 HP with a 3-gear transmission. The original price was $230 and the actual value is a minimum of $55,000. I saw the bike being ridden hard with a passenger in the sidecar and this vision made me think again of the reason why most of us became custom builders: a brand called Harley-Davidson.
