I'm pretty much Harley through and through, but that's a damn cool old bike. I really like the passenger seat arrangement.

Take off that passenger handhold loop thingy and you could maybe bounce the ol' lady right off if you hit a big enough bump?

What's that bronze colored thing strapped on below the passenger seat? An old fashion fire extinguisher of some kind?

That IS a fire extinguisher! I've seen them before but forget what environmentally UN-friendly agent was used to fill them. Carbon Tetracloride seem to come to mind.....
Way cool old bike ! Thanks for posting!

Looks like a ww2 era BMW R75. Should have a sidecar with driven wheel. Fantastic bike in original condition.
