I know, but I'm not saying
It's got too many gears and top speed 170km/h.

Something makes me think it's a Kreidler when you say about too many gears. I know they made a 50cc disc valve engined bike with 12 gear ratios around '61. That bike looks a bit later than that though.

Better trivia for this bike: How tall would you have to be to reach all the way across that gas tank?

Pure guessing... it's a four stroke based on what appears to be overhead cam design, I'll say twin 125, and even number of gears is easy to do, shuttling two ways for each fork, so I'll say 8 gears. You could really wind a twin 125 to make power so you'd need a close ratio transmission to keep it in the power band. Maybe even 10 gears. Maybe I don't have a clue.

Elo don't let the picture fool you.
This bike is extremely small in size!
I 'll post a picture with a rider after the trivia is finished and you 'll see what I mean.
Andy created it, so I don't want to spoil it

Andy already said it's a 1965 Honda!
I'll give you a little help to start your research!
Smeghead got the capacity right and Dad got the number of cylinders.
Can't help you more, my hands are tied
You'll have to ask Andy for more

If it's only a 50cc and, as I believe, a four stroke, then it will have more gears, not less. 12 or 14?
