I don't think they are invaders..also even more interesting is that bike looks to be shaft drive...some definite machining in those///

looks like this wheel just painted ugly...

awo is a modernisation of the good old BMW r25 single, build in eastern germany before the wall fell. some very nice customs where build by the DDR youth back than. most of them sadly disapeared. or got used for parts to restore others back to original. drove a truck few times to DDR when borders opened to get classic cars from there, should have bought the custom awo bikes too. lots of them got wieghed in for scrap cause they could buy jap bikes cheaper.

todays prices for a bare restorable AWO are quite high :(
