For number two - I have seen that before - Not sure if it is for officers or incliment weather but - Yes canopy to save the passenger from the elements.

For 4 and 5 I am going to go with "German" :)

1. Pre-war Steib on a BMW R5
2. Yep, and I think the sidecar is a Royale.
3. Yes - see the Red Cross.
4. Stoye - became part of Awtovelo and eventually MZ.
5. Stoye, Royale, Tabel or Steib - show the front and you can tell.

#5  --  That's a war-modified Steib Model S200, just like the one in my garage, and yes, it's missing the nose trim, just like the one in my garage.

Or it could be an S350 which had the same rear or Royale and Stoye models which had very similar rears. Need to see the front for an exact identification.

Skies on a military Husquavarna. I think. If so, the bike is a two stroke 250 with two speed automatic transmission. Designed so the average soldier with no previous motorcycle experience could learn to ride in summer or winter in a very short time.

Guzzi trike is most probably an Ercole.  Was an article on one in one of the British classic bike mags...The Classic Motorcycle, I believe.
Here's a site, in German, dedicated to the Ercole http://www.guzzi-ercole.de/

Whn I was in Libya in 1950-52, it was common to see the 500cc Guzzi with the hair pin valve springs, and cylinders with fore and aft cooling fins, hauling produce, boxes and freight. I was impressed as to how fast they could run, i was rideing a 125cc James at the time, and couldn't keep up.....Ken

  It's a standard British seat used virtually universally on Brit bikes up until swing arms, shocks and bench seats came into general use.  They were manufactured by the Lycette co. and are currently available through your friendly local Royal Enfield dealer for only an arm and two legs.
