This one's definitely post-war

If you had the right access, you could run the 5 and 6 digit #s after the WH to get the year and model. If that old data survived the war, that is.

Also, the fellow on this American bike is wearing a German helmet.

Based on what seems to be a mix of Allied and Axis military vehicles, and amicable mix of an uniformed and civilian people, could this be a post-surrender photo? Or is it a scene of German military with captured Indian sidecars?

Never seen one before. Not available on this side of the pond.
Much like a TW200, which we do get.

Cool bike, but impractical. That belt drive would be toast before very long at all riding it on a dirt road.

Buell Ulysses has belt drive doesn't it?
Weren't they sort of designed for that kind of stuff.

I've seen this bike a few times. My fav ADV Sportster.

Is that from personal experience, or something you have heard?

I rode my Electra Glide quite a lot on dirt in Oz (thousands of miles) and had no problems. That was about 25 years ago.

The only negative I read about belt drive and dirt roads is that if a stone
gets caught between the belt and the pulley, it can put a hole in the belt.
Never happened to me when I rode a Harley.

I had a bolt fall on the final drive belt and go around the pulley several times (before I could stop) until it was fully pressed into the fiber of the cogged belt. I pried it out and there was a small hole where the head of the bolt was. The belt lasted another 36thousand miles.
