OK... where did you find that?

That would be a Junak M-14 Iskra. It's a Polish creature from the early '60s and underneath the fiberglass body it's an almost complete clone of '50s English bikes.

Shame on me, my heart is black.

Another obscure one . Hints : In 1951 it set the world record at 46.8 mph in the 50cc class . There's a big clue of its ID in the left pic .

I'll take yet another potshot... Suzuki RP68? FIM changed rules for the 50cc starting in 1968 so Suzuki scrapped this liquid cooled triple.

Shame on me, my heart is black.

Saw a replica of this at the Glen Curtis museum up in Hammondsport, NY. The original in the Smithsonian I believe. Nice!

once again larry, why dont you try reading the thread before you post. This was already answered correctly and more accurately (its not just FWD, the engine is inside the front wheel)

Dawg: if my website ever gets back online, Ive got pics there of several board trackers taken at the Wheels thru Time museum. Ill throw a couple on this thread.
