    I believe that it's a Velorex 354 like this one:

    The frame is round in front, but the electric tilt/rocker suspension wopuld be more like a Sidestrider/Bingham Mk II - like this one here:

    More info on the Bingham site here:

    The body LOOKS like a Velorex, but could be a Bingham - they were loosely modeled on the Velorex 35x series - the frame seems more Velorex, but the suspension is a puzzler.

    Cheers

    I think you have it Jim...

    The Velo has the same grab rail but the Bingham looks like it too... The shape of the tub and all that. Tiny critter isn't it...? :lol3

    The fender is missing, well, at least that big covered number, The Bingham uses the smaller type.

    So, that shock set up is the electric tilt...? Nice. I think... :scratch Dunno if it works or not.

    Thanks very much,

    Well I bought this home... It had been attached to the Moto Guzzi Eldorado some years back. It will be offered for sale soon. It is a Velorex, 1974 model...
