duckdawg a Banshee motor in a TZ?...

duc1036 Interesting.
The frame is a 1988 or so TZ250, that I know. Engine type is a two stroke, but that might be to obvious. Parallel twin.

TrickLidz Experimental. Only one. Name type of engine.

ccolwell I'm still thinking. How about some negative hints? Have I got any of this wrong: it's OHV and carbureted, friction girder forks, so I make that late 1920's. The copper plating is not original.

Thanks but a few (legal) drugs later and I am much much better and back in business!

The bike used by Mr Rossi is a TM Racing. Good bikes but look at the picture of their factory on Wikipedia: File:Fabbrica TM Racing.jpg - Wikipedia

And none of you still hasn't guessed what my bike is... come on!

DesperateSP2 Sorry for writing so little lately but I have ulnar nerve compression and hence I must use mouse and keyboard as little as possible.

I haven't been in the US in many years so I'll take a potshot in the dark: Barber Museum in Alabama?

About my bike. It has a colorful story and it's one of the relatively few British bikes not made in the Midlands. And about the museum... I won't give it away until the bike is named.

ccolwell I'm going to take a stab and say it's a 1920's Raleigh, although what model is beyond me. I'm guessing the frame didn't come out of the factory looking like that.

If you want harder, here you go:



No need for editing as the bike is currently on display as you see it.

ccolwell That is hard. And I'd love to know where the last two pictures you posted are from; looks like a hell of a museum. In that spirit, and this is probably too easy, identify where this photo is from.

DesperateSP2 Here's a pretty tough one:



Tip: very, very few were made.

You got it -- only it's more than 200cc now. I saw it at the Turkey Trot in Oley, PA yesterday.

ccolwell So...this is not at all fair as it is more or less a one off. Just identify the engine.
