    Does it say WWII anywhere in the eBay ad?

    I'm thinking that's the model some neo-Nazi group would be riding or something, because that sure as heck isn't from the 40's. You'd have to have a Ural for that.

    Is this, for example, what they're almost trying to say? 1941 R-71

    I found this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disc_brake
    Apparently disc brakes were developed in the 1890's in England.
    I was aware that disc brakes were in use on airplanes during WW II.

    Or this:

    I took a picture of this at an aircraft museum outside of Virginia Beach, Virginia:

    An expert can comment on the authenticity and model.
