I found this website http://www.jeepvillage.com/militaire/neuve/index.html It is in French and I can't read it. I clicked on everything I could see but didn't find a catalog or parts listing. Do you have a part number for it? Where did it mount on a Jeep?
Thanks,

yes that's the good website , but that's true : it is difficult to understand something on that website .
in facts : i go directly to the workshop ; one small hour from my home .
Chris : don't you have any friend in USA who restore Jeeps MB ??? 1942 ???
the place he will look for his spare parts ( SURE there are many workhops ) : you will find the same fire extinguisher support !
it was placed originally on EACH jeep ! on the right , under the passenger's dashboard ( i believe )
you will also find the fire extinguisher ( very-good repop ...and price too :shock: ) and many other good military stuff . :D :D :D
like the rear-view mirror and its black-out wrapping ...this is also a JEEP MB part .

Congratulations on another example of your craftsmanship. This machine would have won the 1940 US Army motorcycle bid request for sure :-). Is it for personal use or a customer project? Cheers, PJ

Kurt :
if you want :
i would be very honoured you use these pics on your website !
Okay i worked a lot on , but all the parts comes from http://www.45partsdepot.com !
even if they are highly modifyed to fit le Warboy'sframe .

why don't you créate a "customer's bikes" section ????

this could be HOT dor your buisness !!!!

look : the "custom world" joins the "classic world" IN this scoot :D
i think something great is happenning ....



to Piet Jan :

as usual ....this scoot is MINE
as usual....customers don't have enough money for that ( coz Man : this building was a real brain-teaser !! ).
but ...

maybe i don't ask to the GOOD customers ?

I wish I had your eye for detail, and the patience and talent to let people feel it, not just see but truly feel the piece of work before them. Thanks again , Neil74
