Not sure if anyone has posted this one:
Yep a 1976 CanAm 500 dual rotary valve 2-stroke twin. Carbs and Rotary valves on top of the cases with downdraft carbs. Was a fast bike in its day but never went into production. It almost got there but pollution standards scared Bombardier so they dropped it. I saw two of the preproduction models close-up in 1975.

Anyone figure this one out yet? Whatever, a 1600 Cortina in a Featherbed frame, for a Nortina.
