wow andy, i think it took me longer to find a website with a dkw than it did for you answer the question.

there was a dkw for sale in roadracingworld several months ago, they wanted like nr750 money for it.

I've have a soft spot for DKW's because my father used to ride them and he has mentioned them over the years.

A little furthur research on the 3-cylinder DKW. I assumed it was an in-line three... Wrong.

Take a look at this exploded diagram.
