Looks like just a 'D1' BSA 'Bantam'!  And wasn't Kawasaki's 650cc effort based on a BSA 'A10'?  The story goes that they bought one, stripped it down, made improvements where appropriate and then into production.  Production was helped by modern machine tools unlike for BSA.

Scant regard for intellectual property is not a recent phenomonen.

Please take care and stay upright.


PS - We pinched the 'Bantam' design from DKW at the end of the War.

The Table-Top Railway is a train set trying and failing to be a model railway.

I believe that train sets and model railways are fun.
