Seen one at a show unrestored in a faded deep red.
Ol' man DuPont rode one around parts of the USA tryinng to drum up interest. (and ppl think guzzi was first)

Fewer than 600 were produced and they were sold for less than $600 after WWII.

I googled a link to its History about three months ago and it is IIRC.

Its sad when it reach the point that it just not worth risking driving or showing to others because it might cost you to much to find another , if you can.

I read that with the money the Army appropriated for the project the Indian 841's and Harley XA's ended up costing the tax payer about $30,000 each at a time when bikes were selling new for under a grand.

Guzzi and Honda are the only manufacturers that have made this work, google 1933 AJS S3 for an even earlier model (didn't know whether I could post image here?)

Cool, thanks.

The AJS S3 was a 50 degree V-twin and the Honda CX series were 80 degree.
Brit mag Bike called the CX a plastic maggot & London dispatch riders loved'em.

The Indian 841 & Guzzi are 90 degree engines=near perfect primary balance.

Enough thread jack.
