Kawasaki 250 gp
Have no idea but going by the chain Kawasaki.
RGV 500 motor
If it's not an RG I'd guess a Barton.
Long shot, Buell 750
3 legs was nearest it's actaully a RGB 500, the race motor.
I don't know what the V8 is, but I hope to hear about it. Looks ace !

At about 2.50 you can hear how it sounded.
Back in 1938 Plinio Galbusera and Adolf Marama Toyo built a two-stroke V8 motorcycle engine with a compressor.
I cheated but could only find the middle picture.
Tauno Olavi Nurmi from Finland independently constructed a V8 #racing #motorcycle. It was a 350cc V8-powered 4-stroke motorcycle engine with a V angle of 90°
Sadly no pic, but I hope someone's seen this one:
A while back (2018) the Caravan World mag people did a road trip up through WA; in one small town, one of them took a pic of a radial engine on a stand, on (I think) a trailer and just called it "an aircraft engine" - but I looked at it a bit more closely - and it was made from nine (or maybe seven?) XR500 engines!
But there was only one image with the engine very much in the background, so I have no idea how it was all hung together. I'd love to know what it was used for, if it ever flew, how it was made and what was down about oil pooling in the heads of the upside-down engines.
Anyone else seen it?
And there's Boss Hoss still churning out bikes with Chev V8s for the road.
How's this ?
I'm not sure about calling them bikes but if that's what floats your boat...
V8: How embarrassment. Should have realised it was the Guzzi without the dustbin. Kinda obvious !
