It would appear to be a Subaru engine mated to an early BMW motorcycle. If I remember correctly BMW had some fairly drastic engine "issues" in the early 60's (the chrome cylinder lining was self destructing, and it was foolishly expensive to fix, cylinders not being removable from the crankcase), so it was possible to see all sorts of things mated to the BMW gearbox. I have seen this picture before, but at the time VW air cooled engines were "the favorite" swap, of which I had seen a few "in the flesh". The front end looks Hondaish, maybe 750,900, or early lead wing (one and the same), with an aluminum rim laced in. Tank, and seat, who knows, probably fiberglass road race relics from around the same time frame.

I *think* one of these might be a bit more fun and about as practical:

It's not german, it's dutch.

This is a one off and is the property of a subaru dealer here in the Netherlands. I don't know that much about it, just that it's been standing there for ever as part of the showroom and that it's not for sale. I thought it was an EA71, but I could very well be wrong.

That photo has been floating around the subaru boards as long as i've been around (~8 years).

I heard at one point it was actually an EA81, but either way I like the idea. I'd love to use my EA61 for a custom bike...

If you look at the valve covers you can see how it has one corner cut off like the EA81s do. EA71s and earlier had squarish valvcovers didnt they?

I'm not so sure - 2.2 litre v8, a hell of a lot heavier, 60hp, range just 100 miles. The soob bike would be quicker.

It looks a whole lot better though.
