I was putting fat in the rocket today and this rolled up as well. It is the loudest motorcycle I have ever heard. A chat with the owner confirmed there were no baffles in the exhaust.

Tasty. I love inline 4's, reminds me of my 1979 750k, now departed. Although the one in the picture looks like the 8 valve head. My K was double overhead cam, 16 valve. And yes inline 4's can really make a horrible racket, no basso profundo like a Guzzi V-twin.

Unlike so many of the shitty, hipster horrors that simply involve buying an old turd and attacking it with an angl grinder and taking the front mudguard off that looks genuinely sweet and pays homage to the great Honda racers of the early sixties. Apart from the horrible twin headlights me likely a lot!

OH!!!!
Look at that fork brace!!!!!!!!!!!
I wanna make those for a living.
What? The market will only support 5 of them? Sad
back to my corner in my garage.

Is the front tire a 19"??
My 19" CB750 rim was big enough that a straight across brace like that would not have worked.

The only thing wrong with this post is Beetle didn't take another 20 photos.
With the big bore carbs and oil cooler and making so much noise, I would guess a big bore kit and stroker crank have been added.

Wheels look like period Lester mags from UK, could be an 18" front. But that tank, iron butt anyone?
