D Rad Classic Motorcycles

    Introduction

    D-Rad motorcycles were produced between 1921 and 1933 by the Berlin-Based Deutsche Industriewerke and designed by the engineer Christiansen. The machines were nicknamed Springboks from Spandau and constitute the archetype of 1920's German motorcycle design: sturdy, strong and well-built.
