There is a nice touch on this engine. It says "NOT MADE IN ENGLAND" on the crankcase. It was made in Sweden.

"Not Made in England" That's kind of hilarious, how insulting.
Man, you guys dig up some obscure stuff.

Do you know why computers were never manufactured in England?

Do ya?......

They couldn't figure out how to make them leak oil! lol! Juuuust kidding. tongue

I didn't find it insulting but an amusing way of saying that it is a replica. We have a strange sense of humour in England.

The constant leaking of oil from our motorcycles (in particular) saved on oil changes. The constant topping up meant that oil changes weren't necessary and the engine had a constant supply of fresh oil!

However, I must take umbrage over the computer remark!

The Colossus was the first electric programmable computer and was developed by Tommy Flowers and first demonstrated in December 1943. The Colossus was created to help the British code breakers read encrypted German messages.

and prior to that

In 1822, Charles Babbage purposed and began developing the Difference Engine, considered to be the first automatic computing engine that was capable of computing several sets of numbers and making a hard copies of the results. Unfortunately, because of funding he was never able to complete a full-scale functional version of this machine. In June of 1991, the London Science Museum completed the Difference Engine No 2 for the bicentennial year of Babbage's birth and later completed the printing mechanism in 2000.

Later, in 1837 Charles Babbage proposed the first general mechanical computer, the Analytical Engine. The Analytical Engine contained an Arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU), basic flow control, and integrated memory and is the first general-purpose computer concept. Unfortunately, because of funding issues this computer was also never built while Charles Babbage's was alive. In 1910, Henry Babbage, Charles Babbage's youngest son was able to complete a portion of this machine and was able to perform basic calculations


But no offence taken!

I stand corrected.
