    Kind of cool though.
    You win, Raven! Quick google reveals these were formally called "Magirus Deutz" and did, in fact have Deutz air-cooled engines. Good call!

    Lucky guess, the lights on the roof reminded me of some old rescue trucks.
    I have seen a few Deutz motors before. Some people were converting their trucks to diesel in the early 80's using them.

    I recall 2 stroke V6 desiels being common as bus motors some years back also. But would never have thought air cooling would be sufficient for one of these. How wrong I was.

    Have a buddy that is awesome with paint,here's a couple challenges I put forth to him ,the Corona was a nightmare to paint as it was soooo many layers of paint and all hand laid,decal kit was the easy part. The triple 9 was a tribute to the late great Joey Dunlop

    Okay. Heres the dumb question of the day.(year)
    When you have no side stand and get to your destination, or stop for a break, do you just lay the bike against a tree?
