What's the oil filter looking cylinder where the bean can sits?
I'd guess it's a magneto ignition.
I have posted this some bike in a number of threads, but it seems to fit here too. Besides, I am justifiably proud, that is my girl in the saddle.
Wow! What a cool picture!!!
Yeah, that's a great view.
What's the story, there?
Just an alloy cover for the bean can. With no front engine cover, water could get in there so the owner put the alloy cover on there.
( It's Jim Cray's bike)
For the record, I selected second instead of third as I entered the corner. It may look like I'm backing it in, Motard style, but in fact I'm desperately trying to hang on!

The v8 engine was homemade..... :huh
Hey your a humble person, I might have taken credit for drifting in the corners.
I rather buy multiple Brough Superiors.
Of which there are multiple...
OK, Pommie John's "backing it in" was my background for a day or two, but the young lady on the salt flats has bumped that photo.
Not that bad ass - but still an airhead, well some of it.
Belong to a friend of mine - Erik the blacksmith. At the time its under heavy
modification - the internals are undergoing some horrific weight reducing procedures
Flowers? hell, no.
Now if it was some other piece, I'd have to think about it. Ok, I still wouldn't buy that MV.
yes François Fressard
feel free to ask me if you've got qestion about his bike and i'll forward him in french you're request
Here you've got some information...unfortunatly in french
My R75/7 at the 1st Bulldog Bash in the early 80's (killed the clutch)
Same bike different angle
My Last Airhead, Twin plugged R100 mid 90's.
My old 75 at it's present owner's house
This photo here, now this is a crying shame--and shame on that current owner.
I wouldn't think a burnt clutch would take that long to fix.
Fixed the clutch after the Bash, the bike was ridden a lot since then and I holed a piston once but rebuilt it. my mate bought it off me then moved to Germany and they would not let him ride it out there with all the mods so I bought it back, then years later he moved back to blighty and I sold it back to him, then he had a family and it sank into the state it is in today, I dont really want it back it looks very sad but I have too much else to do.
Just worked out that when I bought the R75/7 back in 83 it was only 6 years old (and bog stock in metallic blue with headlamp fairing) and I cut it up with a hacksaw (cos it was a cheap nail then), cant imagine buying a 6 year old beamer now as a cheap hack.
