    I agree with K88.

    Japanese firm Mugen tests the water for brand new 1,400cc V-twin engine at Tokyo bike show in 2018.
    A mock-up of an all-new V-twin engine sat next to the new Mugen electric TT racebike on the Mugen stand, with a design drawing of a sleek naked roadster and a request for feedback on whether the firm should make the new ‘MRV1400’.

    The engine layout has the same Vincent feel as its ancestor, with distinctive pushrod tubes and a separate transmission. It looks both old and new at the same time – the classic OHV layout balanced by the high-tech oil system fittings and header pipes. It's also running Keihin carburettors, which won't be able to pass road emissions tests nowadays. So they'll need to fit fuel injection, or keep it as a non-road-legal machine.

    I was thinking it might have been the twin 500's (I think) Maico or Husky I remember seeing in a bike mag in the 80's, but I think the chain is on the wrong side...
