Those bikes were produced here in Denmark from 1934 to 1960 , and was wery common , used for daily transportation -delivery off goods - post delivery - in the military - and -and .Many off them was equipped with sidecar .
Ther nichname was "humblebee" , because of their sweet sound.
It was 750ccm , 4 cylinder ,4-stroke , shaft drive , 4 in one exhaust , and 22 horsepower and WERY reliable for those days.
In the late 60. and early 70. you could by a decent one for 200 to 400$ , because many of their owners "upgraded" to a car .
A good one , in original shape , are now around 10,000$ , and there is still quite a lot of them .

The winner is the man with most tools !

It is beautiful, and clean. Hard to believe they didn't have cooling issues, with that arrangement. Ancient Popes and Indian inline 4s were allegedly known for incinerating the rear cylinder.



Very neat, though.

6'-2", 210, old Geezer Glide and a big dumb grin.

Goldwings. . . if you're gonna have something between your legs, it might as well be enormous and smooth.
