I missed this in my spam filter back on Nov 26 (sorry about that David). I’m not a vintage expert by any means but I swear that tank is a Super X. See this pic HERE. Just a guess though. Anyone else?
This photo is of a family member of mine way back in the day in Sweden and I have not been able to identify the manufacturer even when using a magnifying glass. Can anyone identify this bike?
UPDATE: LINK TO THE BUILD THREAD Thank you Eric from the comments!
Over the years I’ve started following different photo albums on the web and I get periodic e-mail updates on activity. I’ve lost track of who’s who but every once in a while I get a nice surprise. This bike has a more complete album over on Google Picasa HERE. I have no further information other than the pictures. Can anyone name that engine? BIG single cylinder liquid cooled Yamaha. I don’t think it’s a US sold model.
We have a winner from the comments:

DKW Hummel Victoria (google it!)
Hell of a catch!
Warren Wood sends in this mystery bike… Interesting but not a clue on my part.
Mystery bike in Paranesti,Thrace, Greece. —also— my ancient [1989?] Honda AX1 250cc while on tour of the Rodolpi Mts, same area.
A hugely underappreciated little Honda

I have to confess that I’d love to own something like this. Cruising around Jacksonville Beach on one of these would be a blast. I know there are modern versions that you can add to an existing bike but it’s lack the character that this one has. Maybe the coolest exhaust pipe EVER! LOL Cool stuff! Thanks Frank!
