Not original. But fantastic. Fast rally bike. Belgium license plate

A true bitsa in every sense of the word...
A short stroke (?) in a WNG frame + GB box, Triumph oil tank and BSA 8"front brake.
Must have been someone's favorite mount!

I love it !

It has an oil feed to the exposed valve gear - but what is that hose leading down from the forks to the head (additional oiler ??) ? I'm guessing the cable behind the hose is a valve lifter (?).

It looks like a good, honest, everyday-use bike with no pretentions.
