This is the real deal...check it out. Russia,China,East Germany made copies of BMW's,Japan had Marusho,Lilac,BIM,MANY more. They copied Velocettes,Victoria Burgmeisters,I even saw a pressed frame copy of a early BMW single,this is not surprising at all they would copy a BMW plunger. Look at Facebook, "Vintage BMW motorcycles" group for more pictures..
