Hi Lt.Gustl,

This is a very interesting trivia.

Is it the German made 1965 Kreidler 50cc streamliner. It set a land speed record for that class.

Kreidler started making bikes in 1951 in Germany and stopped in 1983. Garelli rebadged some of their small cc bikes as Kreidler until around 1988.

Hi Lt.Gustl,

I was wondering if you had a chance to look over my answer. Is it correct?

yes you are, I thought I replied but I often get kicked offline and there were the posting difficulties, so who knows, but the important part is you got it right,

There isn't a whole lot of information on 50cc machines and I thought that the pic with the removed bodywork would trip people up, so I better try harder next time

I also thought that the company was dutch, but apparently it is just that the dutch importer Van Veen was more active in racing, they were more famous for another bike though, I think that the name might be owned by an asian company now that's rebadging scooters, but I can't find where I read that,

see if you can find the answer to my question in the Honda forum about 16 and 18 inch wheels,

It was the plexiglass at the f/wheel that gave away the 50cc, but I simply could not remember the name.

50cc racers

RE: the streamliner stuff by (other) senior members, ya got anything on the mid-60's Suzuki 50cc triple/twin-crank/rotory-valve/22,000rpm/19HP/12 or 16? speed gearbox GP bike that didn't get to race because of FIM rule changes to singles or twins only for 50cc while the Suzuki was built? Was that a long enough sentence?

Hey Andy thanks for the reply BUT that one you featured is a twin. This was a triple-a V three. I have a one page feature on it from a late 60's Cycle World but I can't grab it right now due to moving/packed away. But it was built. Now THAT"S trivia!
