Now, that is a sexy motor. Only problem is that it would be ruined when you add a UK number plate. :D

It's a Killinger und Freund. The company was a 1930s alliance of five Munich engineers - who came together to attempt to create a more streamlined and modified version of the Megola front-wheel drive motorcycle.
This is a Megola

It took Killinger und Freund three years to come up with a completed bike. The engine was 600 cc (same as the Megola) but it was much lighter and more simplified than standard 100 cc motorcycles of the time.

Image

Here's some close-ups of how they approached the problem of getting weight and power to the front wheel:

Image
As far as I can tell, only one Killinger und Freund was ever found after the war, and this is what became of it:
Image
Don't know if it was ever put back together again!

More info here and here

(Until this morning I knew nothing about this amazing bike! I do a fair bit of web research for my job, and started using Pinterest just today, to see if it would help me find and catalogue interesting stuff. I use Delicious quite a lot, but since it's re-design I just find it annoying. Mostly, Pinterest's just full of pics of pretty girls in nice frocks and shoes and stuff, and poncey house interiors for arty designers, but I found this - so hey maybe Pinterest's not all bad.)
