Maybe there's more to that than you realize.

So my inner nerd finds this image fascinating- this is the earliest picture I've seen of a cool air duct to a carb. It didn't become a common practice until the late 80's to feed race engines unheated air, and was quickly eclipsed by large volume tuned airboxes fed with air ducted from the front of the machine. "Ram air" followed, but was of limited utility- the largest gain was in intake resonance and denser intake air. My RS250 was converted to a later "Ram air" style tank and intake, but I think it's primary advantage was to feed cooler air to the motor as well as somewhat cooling the fuel itself, as the intake air is ducted through the tank.

That flex ducting isn't the best flowing stuff. I believe that the bike is a 350 because of the background color on the number plate, which appears to be blue. I also believe that the fairing is a Peel "Mountain Mile". They were made in the Isle of Man.

The late 60's/early 70's have got a lot to answer for. Love the furry seat though

Outstanding PIC,

Scarf, no gloves, mid gear change with a foot clutch - impressive.
Clearly pre ATGATT era!
Someone must have some history on the rider.
