Webley-Vickers

Fatfatboy
Here’s one I never seen or heard of.
A 2000 cc V-Dub powered bike from the 70’s.  
It’s built with a BMW chassis and apparently back in the 70’s you could buy complete bike or a DIY kit

It’s coming up for auction later this mont.

Looks like a cross between a goldwing, motoguzzi and ultra glide.

Weird seeing a car emblem on a bike. 🤔

Nightmare? This...?

I thought bowling balls were Harley's 1970's nightmare?

I did some googling and couldn’t find anything about a company in Florida that produced a veedub bike but discovered that there were a lot of folks doing it. Even found a FB group.

Von Dutch made one.

I like the black one.

BSA front end? I would change that.
