A single belt or strap is all that is needed on this combination of tank and frame due to the frames flat top rails and tanks flat bottom.

I believe the konig engine was a rotory valved engine. the belt going over the engine case is probably to drive the rotory valve?????

Great photography, even greater bikes!

Beautiful collection of pics, glad I finally found it.

Nice to see Michele Duff readily accepted back into the community of GP Legends. I believe there's a Konig racer in the Barber collection in Alabama and apparently Sammy Miller was there too, because one of my all time favorite GP bikes, the 500cc, water cooled, V4cyl, supercharged AJS pre WWll road racer was present and I don't think it goes anywhere without Sammy.

Be still my heart. Many thanks.

C-ya, Jer

More on Konig's

Here's the one in the Barber collection. Damn ADV only allows hosted pictures now? If you're interested PM me and I'll email you the pic.

I hope to see the documentry dvd one day

C-ya, Jer

PS Doesn't Konig mean King?

In europe and Daytona beach.
