Not a motorcycle, but would you call this mud?


Western NSW red soil mud, not terribly sticky but VERY slippery, the black soil mud, sticky as hell, is in the hollow on this area.
Western QLD is the place for black soil mud, Marris 1800 sedans were popular out there before the days of bitumen roads everywere as the front (drive) wheels could be put on backwards so the tyre was outside the guards and so wouldn't build up with mud and stop turning, sh1t everywere though.

No idea what kind of a car that is, but that’s a really good idea!

Well off subject, but the Morris 1800 was an early front wheel drive, and had deeply dished wheels, so reversing them made a big difference.

See here for all you EVER whant to know about Morris 1800,s, http://staging.motorbase.com/profile...0;p=1096710781

I'd hazard a guess that is a Sputnik(not a Jupiter)

Can you imagine, why I didn't understand it immediately?

It's a Jupiter (with some changes) and a Moto Guzzi SP 1000 (with some changes)

I used to have the IZH brocures showing the progression. The Sputnik superseded the Jupiter which had a slightly different body, trunk access behind the seat and a cool nose which slid forward on tracks for passenger access.

The Sputnik is the more recent model with a hinged trunk and nose a little different shape and different seat. The running lights may also differ.
