Zoober Teaser ! Modified Honda under seat tank. Me likey.
Good read on Kevin Schwantzs...yep that's Kevin in the photo with dirt bike power steering bars.
Who needs salt !
I think those bars were the 'superbike' bend. I ran them on a lot of my bikes. Perfect angle if the bars were low.
Prototype hardley triple?
Very simple drive line, must be a board tracker. 'F' head with overhead poppet intake valves.
Throttle? We don't need any stinky throttle.
...And no brakes??? I'm not seeing any levers for that- just compression braking? Is there some sort of clamp on the crank?
From 1900-1911, Buchet was an automotive machine and motorcycle manufacturer. His 1903 3 litre twin-cylinder model achieved 75 mph (121 km/h) in the hands of Maurice Fournier. It was also used as the chassis for Ernest Archdeacon's experimental 'propeller driven motorcycle', the Aéromotocyclette Anzani of 1906.
La Foudre (Lightning) was a pioneer of French motorcycle history. It used a 350 cc 'inlet over exhaust' …
From Wiki...no mention of the triple....
Nope, no brakes, no throttle, no clutch. Push start it and it runs wide open.
The only control was a kill button on the handlebars.
It was carnage on wheels.
The clamp you are referring to on the crank I would think would be the ignition advance ~ which would control the RPM of the engine some what.
My other guess is that this was an early day board track racer, which ran no brakes.
Who's engine ? Not Honda's, not a MotoGuzzi.
I have been 'drunk as a skunk',,but I have never seen a skunk werk!
This is the shed out the back.
