    The last big bike by Floyd Clymer to wear the Indian logo is the most mysterious. Only one prototype was made, shown below. This was a Norton 750 in an Italjet frame (a bit of a copy of the famous Norton Featherbed frame apparently). The disc brakes are Campagnolo, cable operated. The same Italjet fenders seen on the Horex-Indian and with a BMW headlamp (my 1970 Italian Laverda had one), and a custom fuel tank. A beautiful sports bike.

    Yeah, I felt pretty bad about that so I got her an old purple dirt bike. I'd take a dirt bike over a neck any day. One day she'll inherit the old Datsun, too. The bike and the truck are both '71 models.

The public was the first time at the BK 350 Leipzig Spring Fair presents 1951 as "DKW two-cylinder engine". [1] The series launch was delayed until end of 1952. Because of its special design, the BK 350 was expected with great interest internationally.
    The BK 350 was the first new construction of the former DKW -plant after the war and was initially under the name of the state is now DDR -Vehicle Association IFA off the line. Although it is sometimes said that the engine was not starting unit for jet engines . It is true that in Zschopauer DKW plant a 250 cc big boxer engine has been designed for this task.
