A WWII Treasure Buried in the Forest (11 Pics)

I must confess I envy those guys with enough time to wander the woods and the beaches with their metal detectors. Even if they’re not actually treasure-hunting, these fellows often find amazing pieces with historic value which end up in museums or make awesome memorabilia of times past.

It is not unusual for a team with metal detectors searching a forest to find something. But would you believe if they come across something truly spectacular and unique. It appears that one such team has now found a motorcycle that belongs of the World War II. This motorcycle was found buried in the forest and is estimated to be around 80 years old. It is indeed quite a rare treasure to come across in woods and is no everyday treat. It has not been revealed yet where exactly was this motorcycle found.

As per certain web resources, this motorcycle is either the original DKW Luxus 300 from which the Russian got their inspiration or it is a Red October L-300 motorbike. However, we would still welcome any knowledge or information that our readers may have to share about this bike that would enable us to recognize the true origin for this motorcycle.

As far as our information and history goes, Russian were licensed by DKW to carry out the production of the Luxus 300 motorbike. The Russians then stared creating their version of the bike in a manufacturing facility in Leningrad, Sankt Petersburg. The ‘L’ in the name of the bike stands for the name of the city.
