Photographed in its natural habitat at Vintage Motorcycly Days its the biggest streetfighter known to man or beast.









just to make things interesting, theres a free repsol cap to the first member who can correctly identify both the bike and the tie in to OldSkool....

Ummm, I give up. The handle bars and front end look similar to my SV650, the frame is close to a YZF...

What is the intake on the bike and where would I put the gas? Very Happy

I just don't think that they are getting it Jon. Its a 90 degree transverse V4 with shaft drive and an aluminum frame. From the tires (supercorsa) its got 17's at both ends so its prolly a sport or sport/touring machine... how many of those could there be.

plus the obvious clues in the background.... Rolling Eyes

Do you and Cynthia want to split the hat or will I need to find another one...somebody has got to win this one(the last 'giveaway I posted is still not solved--and it was even easier, guess you can lead a squid to water but you cant make em swim.) Laughing Laughing Laughing

Wait, I just noticed, it appears to have linked brakes too!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but what about the tie in?

The fuel goes into the rear subframe, thats an oil cap from a 737 that he's using as a gascap.

(Here is your hint for today)
Ride Well,

I knew it was a HONDA!! years ago I had a 82' CX 500 that was liquid cooled, opposed and shaft drieven 2 cylinder just like that. The clutch basket in the front of it gave it away for me I just couldnt put a finger on it as to what it was ...
