    Saw this at a gas station in Nevada on the way home from California in 1977. Dunstall disc front brakes.

    It’s an opposed 4 two stroke boxer.

    here’s one in a Beemer!

    Sorry..but what? Those aren't even remotely the same motors. I see a verticle cylinder and a horizontal cylinder, much like a Ducati in the photo I quoted. Spark plug caps being a dead giveaway. Are we looking at the same photo?

    This is the photo I see and it's 100% a 90 degree twin.

    Here’s another one. In a sidecar.

    This is the most confusing engine I've ever seen and I'm fascinated.

    I still don't get it. I'm seeing 2 horizontal spark plugs. Where's the opposed twin "boxer" part of the motor?

    I think what you’re seeing sticking up at a right angle is the carb. It is a two stroke I believe so th carb would feed the “bottom” of the stroke.
    Interesting engine indeed.

    On the OPPOSITE side, perhaps?

    Is that toothed belt off the crank driving a rotary valve under the carb?

    Rear spark plug change would be fun...
