I ran across this...picture of the longest motorcycle...

http://damncoolpics.blogspot.com/2006/11/longest-motorcycle-in-world.html

One of the pictures shows the engine close up. It's prior to /2 based upon the exposed electrics. There's definitely been some customization of the engine...

What Year is This Engine?

Looks like a Ural engine to me.

That seems to be the concensus. Whenever I see the horizontally opposed engine, I immediately think BMW. I keep forgetting that Ural and others used the same concept.

................especially when you see the Cyrillic letters on the license plate and the name of the builder.
