Once again Phil from Phil Aynsley Photography give us a fabulous shooting with this 250 GP DKW. A 1936 ex-works 250 bought to Australia in 1937 as a practice bike by German Ewald Kluge (a DKW team rider 1936-53), it remained in a Victorian DKW dealership awaiting the arrival of a 1938 customer racer (see the second bike) for a return racing campaign the following year - however the war intervened. The bike was eventually discovered in poor condition in Adelaide in 1960 and finally restored over 20 years later.
