And now for something different- Alfa Harley

Post by Brian16 »

Hi, Got these pics from an Alfa friend. Unfortunately, we have no details about the project. Looks like the oil sump has been shortened to save space and there is some form of external lubrication. Wonder how often he has burnt his legs on the exhaust ?? I just love those intake trumpets going "through" the fuel tank! // Brian.

La vita e troppo breve da non guidare un'Alfa

I thought the 2 things further up the tank were the fuel filler caps.

It only has 4 intakes as it breathes through a pair of downdraft carbs. I have a little bit of information on this bike on my site. In fact I am rather proud to say my site was the first to show this bike. Since then it's been seen all over and in at least one magazine. The owner sent me quite a few pictures of it and a lot of information as he was building it. He did a great job.
