Kinda looks like an MV Augusta motor.
I noticed that, too, especially the bottom end. Harley owned MV at one time (sold for a dollar) but I think that was later?
Agree, it's well known there were running protos of the V-4, water cooled (hidden radiator) Nova.
H-D came very close to putting it into production, from what I've read, but went with the Evo instead.
They also had a air-cooled SOHC v-twin almost ready for production in 1976-ish, but pulled the plug.
There's an engine on the engine wall in the museum.
Here's a crappy pic of a mock-up.
They do have an OHC V-twin engine like that one on display, although it looks air-cooled. The plaque claims 15:1 compression.
The Harley Nova V4 was water cooled. The "gas tank" is actually a shroud over the radiator, which was mounted above the engine. The fuel tank was actually located behind the engine.
A guy in the Aermacchi FB group posted this. It’s been in his family since his mom was a teenager. Her dad bought it for her to ride to high school. They added the saddlebags so she could carry her books and cheerleading pom-poms. Mom had wicked style.
Whoa! Way -cool heritage/heirloom.
Same bike, new pipes - the originals rusted through.
I quite like the sound, actually.
A couple of small one's got ridden/exercised today from the "Rizingson Collection!"
1969 Honda Z50A K1
1972 Honda CL70 K3
What great little bikes, those smaller engines run like a sewing machine. Have you got a pushrod 50?
Steering brake ? Nope. Lean to turn ? Not sure how that would work. Some people put a lot of effort in with little results.
You can make a lot of money with war but the Lehaitre was no succes.
Successful was then:
Rode the ‘69 Honda 350 to a vintage club breakfast early this morning. Filled up with some good gas on the way home.
Any chance you have another set of those railroad spike style rear pegs around that youd let go?
My dad and I got out early yesterday morning for a good ride on our old Hondas. A '70 CL350 and a cafed '76 CB400f. We rode dirt & county roads for around 2 hours, and visited the Rushford Lake Dam Site in Rushford NY, it was built in 1929 and is around 125' tall.
I was one of those kids whose parents would never let them have a bike or even a minibike back in the 70s and 80s. I've somewhat made up for it as an adult and parent...
They don't begin in final form. Honda's first steps toward the CX , air-cooled and chain drive.
Sorry, I do not
